Louis Vuitton is well known for luxury products at expensive prices. The company continues to use fur despite the known cruelty and despite protests from caring consumers around the world. The company has revealed in the past that all Louis Vuitton’s fur derives from fur farms. As most of us know, fur farms are among the cruellest establishments in the entire world. Mink, foxes, chinchilla and many other animals are kept in tiny cages for their entire lives, often being unable to perform the simplest of physical and social requirements. Once animals are deemed fit for slaughter, they face an excruciating death from being skinned alive to being anally electrocuted. All animals on fur farms suffer tremendously.
Louis Vuitton’s parent company, Moet Hennessey Louis Vuitton (LVMH) owns numerous fashion houses including Donna Karan, Fendi , Marc Jacobs and Pucci all of which use fur in their collections. This petition is asking 6 of Louis Vuitton’s biggest shareholders to stand up for animals and pressure Louis Vuitton to discontinue it’s use of fur.
This petition is part of a joint campaign by Action for our Planet (AFOP).
