Tell Nordstrom to stop selling ivory

This petition had 3,842 supporters


Ivory for sale by Nordstrom's Hautelook? On Friday, March 17th I was perusing their new sales when I came across the men's jewelry line King Baby, which produced a ring made of ivory. 

After consulting with the US Fish & Wildlife Service, it was determined to be walrus ivory. Walruses are a federally protected species. The laws are slightly convoluted, so it is currently under investigation by the Wildlife Service. Regardless of the outcome, walruses should not have to die for the collection of ivory. According to the agent I spoke with, the cessation of the elephant ivory trade has only increased the demand from other sources, such as that procured from walruses, leading to more deaths for the sake of an unnecessary material. 

Synthetic ivory exists. No animal should die to make a ring. I am calling on Nordstrom to cease the sale of King Baby products and pledge to never sale natural ivory in the future.
