Win a Jay McGuiness T-Shirt for Fur-Free Friday

Posted by on November 23, 2012 | Permalink

Fur-Free Friday is 23 November. To celebrate, The Wanted’s Jay McGuiness has hand-drawn a T-shirt declaring in behalf of animals: “Be Comfortable in Your Own Skin, Not Ours”. The signed shirt is being given away by our friends at Sugarscape.

While fans of The Wanted can be real party animals, life is anything but a party for animals who are used for fur. Rabbits and other animals raised for their fur go crazy from spending their entire lives in cramped, filthy cages, often without shelter from the elements. Fur farmers kill them by drowning them, electrocuting them or breaking their necks. In China, which supplies most of the world’s fur, raccoon dogs, foxes and other animals – including millions of cats and dogs – are often skinned alive.

Of course, with so many warm and stylish synthetic options available, being fur-free has never been easier. The plain white T-shirt that Jay designed for PETA UK actually comes from Forever 21, which has a no-fur policy, just like other brands: River Island, Topshop, AllSaints, H&M, ZARA, New Look and more.

Make a difference this Fur-Free Friday by actively combating the vile fur industry. Once you’ve entered to win the shirt, try some of the following actions:
