Etsy: Ban Fur Sales!

Inflicting cruelty on animals for frivolous fashion is deplorable. Etsy should step up and stop its participation in this this cruel trade, reflecting the view of a growing population of conscious consumers around the world who believe that it’s unacceptable to buy and sell animal fur.

Each year, around one hundred million animals are bred and killed on intensive fur farms specifically to supply the fashion industry with not only traditional fur coats but, increasingly, real fur trim for hooded jackets, and real fur pompoms used on hats, gloves, shoes and a range of other clothing and accessories. It’s estimated that as many as half of all animals raised for their fur are killed to satisfy the market for fur trim.

And what’s more: three years ago, Etsy CEO Josh Silverman managed to ignore a petition with just under 25,000 signatures asking Etsy to go fur-free: https://www.change.org/p/etsy-ceo-josh-silverman-make-etsy-com-fur-free

Nothing changed, yet Etsy continues to claim it strives to be a social business with a positive impact. 

Demand an end to Etsy’s hypocrisy and the cruel, unnecessary, outdated fur trade.
