PETA Sends Michelle Obama Faux-Leather Jacket, Still Waiting On Ours
It must be really nice to be Michelle Obama. Not only does she have incredible style and an enviable figure, but she gets sent clothing for free! Amazing!
The 47-year old has notably been fur free in all her choices and, to up the ante, PETA sent her a faux-leather jacket to try and sway her to clean out all animal products from her closet.
The jacket is from asos.com, and is cruelty free. Along with the gift came a letter explaining to Mrs. Obama that cows raised for their flesh and skin often endure painful branding, dehorning, castration, and tail-docking, all without the help of painkillers. Additionally, once at the slaughterhouse many of these animals are skinned while they are still conscious… Disgusting.
The first lady has been on a roll with reforms, starting her “Let’s Move!” campaign to inspire healthier choices in kids, hosting an eco-friendly Easter egg roll, and penning a book about the White House garden with all proceeds going to charity.
So, in terms of PETA’s message getting through, we think it has a pretty good chance. Here’s hoping she makes an eco-fashion statement!
