Yet another victory in the world of animal rights! GAP, Inc., which owns Banana Republic, Old Navy and Athleta, agreed never to sell Angora wool again and to pull all the items from the company’s websites after a PETA representative attended the annual meeting for the retail giant. GAP, Inc. joins dozens of other companies, including Eddie Bauer, Forever 21, Limited Brands, Mango, H&M, Lands’ End, Calvin Klein, QVC, Tommy Hilfiger and Express, Inc. in banning Angora products.

These landmark changes came after PETA posted a gruesome video showing how Angora products are obtained. The investigator filmed workers who were violently ripping the fur from the animals’ sensitive skin as they screamed in pain. If that isn’t barbaric enough, this practice is repeated every three months for the rest of their sad lives, and after two to five years, the animals that have survived are hung upside down, their throats are slit and their dead, abused bodies are sold.

Even if the rabbits are simply sheared, they still suffer tremendously. During the process, their front and back legs are tightly tethered as the terrified animals struggle desperately to escape. Take the pledge to leave Angora wool out of your wardrobe today, and thank you GAP, Inc. for making this huge change for our furry friends!

Use is harm and that’s of any animal, in any way.

Notes From A Vegan Field… Or Three

Creative, non-violent vegan education, means talking to hundreds of people in one day and other times, it means talking to one.
