Pledge to Shed Exotic Skins From Your Wardrobe

Think you'd look cool in that leather jacket? How cool would you feel if you knew that you could be wearing the skin of baby goats—or even the skin of a dog? 

Millions of animals – including zebras, bison, water buffaloes, boars, deer, kangaroos, elephants, eels, sharks, dolphins, seals, walruses, frogs, crocodiles, lizards and snakes – are slaughtered every year for the global leather industry.

A large percentage of imported crocodile shoe leather and other items made from wildlife come from endangered, illegally hunted animals. Humane treatment is not a priority among poachers and hunters who deal in the dirty exotic-leather trade.

Many animals are boiled and skinned alive just so that others can wear their skins. The world is brimming with viable, fashionable alternatives to animal skins. Compassionate companies such as H&M and Overstock.com have agreed not to sell exotic skins and, in doing so, have sent a clear message that they are not and will never be involved with the barbaric exotic-skins industry.

By signing the pledge below, you'll send a powerful message not only to the cruel exotic-skins industry but also to designers, retailers, and others who directly profit from the suffering caused by this cruel business.

I say "No!" to the cruel slaughter of millions of animals around the world for their skins. I say "No!" to shoes, coats, bags and other products made from the skins of animals and to any other attempt to sneak animal skins into everyday items. I pledge to expose the truth about exotic skins and to spread the word until we close down the exotic-skins trade forever.
