Support a #FurFreeBritain
Fur farming has been illegal in Britain for two decades, but garments made with the skin of animals who were caged and electrocuted or bludgeoned to death or who were caught in steel-jaw traps are still being sold here. In June, during a parliamentary debate, MPs spoke out in favour of ending fur sales, but no clear commitment has been made on this issue.

Ask House of Fraser to stop selling fur
House of Fraser’s new owner, Sports Direct International, has shamefully reversed the British department store’s no-fur policy, even though animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to filthy cages before finally being beaten, electrocuted, or gassed to death – or even skinned alive.
Scroll down to send a message to House of Fraser asking it to reinstate its no-fur policy immediately.
Tell the Danish Government to Ban Fur Farming
Fur farms packed with sick, stressed, and suffering animals are revolting places. And because minks are particularly susceptible to respiratory illnesses, mink farms around the world have become dangerous breeding grounds for disease and have been identified as COVID-19 hotspots.
Please scroll down to send a message to the Danish prime minister and ask her to ban cruel fur farms immediately.
Tell Etsy to ban fur
Etsy allows its users to post and sell items made with real fur, despite hearing from PETA US that animals in the fur industry spend their entire lives confined to filthy cages before finally being beaten, electrocuted, gassed, or skinned alive.
Scroll down to urge Etsy to make a positive impact for animals by updating its Prohibited Items Policy to include a ban on fur.
Urge Escada to stop supporting extreme cruelty to animals for fur
Back in 2011, Escada made the compassionate decision to stop selling fur. But the label has since gone back on its pledge and started stocking shoes trimmed with mink fur and jackets with collars made from raccoon dog pelts, supporting egregious cruelty to animals.
Scroll down to ask Escada to join the fur-free revolution once again and stop selling fur immediately.
Tell the British Fashion Council to ban fur at London Fashion Week
More and more designers are doing the right thing for animals by rejecting fur – which is also responsible for environmental devastation and cruelty to animals. But the British Fashion Council (BFC) has yet to recognise the changing times and British values by ensuring that fur is never again allowed to be paraded down the catwalk at London Fashion Week.
Scroll down to urge the BFC to introduce a ban on fur – and leather – at all its events.
Urge LVMH to shed fur from Louis Vuitton and other brands
LVMH is still selling garments made with real fur – even though the fur trade slaughters millions of animals, including foxes, coyotes, and minks, in gruesome ways each year.
Scroll down to urge LVMH to shed fur – and exotic skins – from Louis Vuitton and all its other brands.
