Millions of reptiles are slaughtered each year and turned into shoes, handbags, belts and other accessories.

These helpless animals are viewed as a commodity by those who poach and hunt them, and these animals suffer as their skin is pulled off their bodies while they are still alive. Oscar-nominated and Golden Globe– and Grammy-winning actor Joaquin Phoenix refuses to support an industry based on such cruelty and takes a behind-the-scenes look at the exotic-skins trade in his exclusive video for PETA US.

Compassionate companies such as Nike, H&M and have agreed not to sell exotic skins. With tons of fashionable and cruelty-free alternatives available, there is no reason for animals to suffer for a wardrobe.
