Every year, humans kill millions of animals for frivolous fashion. But what if the tables were turned? In the fashion world depicted in our provocative new video (donated by Ogilvy & Mather, the world's top ad agency), the statuesque models are foxes—and their grisly outfits include a coat made from dozens of human arms. In reality, foxes on fur farms (http://www.peta.org/issues/animals-used-for-clothing/fur-farms.aspx) are kept in cages so small that they go insane. Snakes (http://www.peta.org/issues/animals-used-for-clothing/exotic-skins-animals.aspx) are commonly nailed to trees and skinned alive. In the U.S., most animals whose skin is turned into leather (http://www.peta.org/issues/animals-used-for-clothing/leather-industry.aspx)endure all the horrors of factory farming, including extreme crowding and confinement, deprivation, castration, branding, tail-docking, and dehorning (http://www.peta.org/features/dehorning-revealed-photos.aspx)—all without any painkillers. And geese (http://www.peta.org/issues/Animals-Used-for-Clothing/down-and-silk-birds-and-insects-exploited-for-fabric.aspx)are violently plucked in order to produce down-filled products.
Before buying real skins, please put yourself in the place of animals. Pledge (http://features.peta.org/runway-reversal/#helping-animals-form) never to wear fur, leather, down, wool, or exotic skins.
