Popular international fast fashion brands such as H&M, Forever 21, and GAP, deal exclusively in fake fur. The reason they do not use real fur is because they understand the cruelty of stripping off the skin of living animals.

For years, Channel has produced fake fur fashion shows, recently H&M has also announced it will debut in the Paris fashion collection, showing that sense, not cruelty, is necessarily for fashion.

Around the globe, real fur is looked down upon, and yet Japan`s representative fast fashion outlet "Shimamura" still sells real animal fur. This is an embarrassment for Japan. With your help, let`s help change Japan into a better, more kind and caring nation by stopping Shimamura from selling real fur.

      "Very little of the great cruelty shown by men can really be attributed to cruel instinct. Most of it comes from thoughtlessness or inherited habit. The roots of cruelty, therefore, are not so much strong as widespread. But the time must come wherein humanity protected by custom and thoughtlessness will succumb before humanity championed by thought. Let us work that this time may come. The quiet conscience is an invention of the devil. Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace. It is man's sympathy with all creatures that first makes him truly a man."

      "Affirmation of life is the spiritual act by which man ceases to live unreflectively and begins to devote himself to his life with reverence in order to raise it to its true value. To affirm life is to deepen, to make more inward, and to exalt the will to live. At the same time the man who has become a thinking being feels a compulsion to give to every will-to-live the same reverence for life that he gives to his own. He experiences that other life in his own. He accepts as being good: to preserve life, to promote life, to raise to its highest value life which is capable of development; and as being evil: to destroy life, to injure life, to repress life which is capable of development. This is the absolute, fundamental principle of the moral, and it is a necessity of thought". - From: Out of My Life and Thought.

      It is cruel and barbaric to kill animals for their fur. These days there is no need to wear fur, there are artificial alternatives. Fur belongs to the animal. The wearing of fur is an anachronism of a bygone age and is not worthy of an ethically progressive society. Fur should be banned.
