Turn to animal-friendly fashions

Retail giants Forever 21 and Eddie Bauer recently announced that they are permanently banning products made with angora wool. Why?

A PETA Asia undercover investigator visited almost a dozen angora rabbit farms in China, the source of 90 percent of the world’s angora wool, and found rabbits screaming and writhing in pain as workers ripped the fur out of their skin.

Rabbits endure this terrifying ordeal every three months for two to five years before being killed.

After they have been plucked bald, the rabbits lie motionless inside their tiny, filthy cages, stunned and in shock.

So far, more than a dozen kind companies have completely banned angora, including Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, IZOD, H&M, Limited Brands, and more.

You can make a difference by banning angora and other animal products, such as wool and leather, from your wardrobe.

To find out how easy it is to swap angora sweaters, wool suits, and leather shoes for warm, stylish, animal-friendly fashions, visit www.PETA.org.
