    Default PETA wants Coach to stop selling Fur!

    This showed up in my main box this morning..

    PETA SHAREHOLDER RESOLUTION CALLS ON COACH TO DROP FUR
    Fashion Retailer Lags Top Designers and Rivals Who've Shed Fur Sales

    New York — PETA, which owns stock in New York–based fashion and accessories retailer Coach, Inc., has filed a shareholder resolution calling on the company to enact a policy to stop acquiring and selling products that are made with fur. PETA points out that dozens of companies and designers—including Polo Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood, Comme des Garçons, Calvin Klein, Betsey Johnson, Gap, Nike (and its affiliate Cole Haan), and Liz Claiborne (and its subsidiaries Juicy Couture and Kate Spade)—have gone fur-free. Coach sells purses, wallets, luggage, and other fashion accessories and products in the U.S. and 20 other countries.

    "Animals who are used for their fur are beaten, drowned, electrocuted, and skinned alive, and by continuing to sell fur, Coach bears responsibility for this cruelty," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "With its competitors making the compassionate choice to end fur sales, it's time for Coach to get off the bench and into the fur-free game."

    Animals who are trapped in the wild suffer excruciating pain before they are drowned or bludgeoned to death. Animals on fur farms are forced to live in filthy cages, and many are driven insane from the constant confinement. The animals are then killed by neck-breaking, poisoning, or anal electrocution.

    An undercover investigation of fur farms in China—now the world's leading fur exporter—revealed that workers smashed the heads of foxes and raccoon dogs against the ground. The animals were still panting and blinking their eyes as they were skinned alive. Millions of dogs and cats are also killed for fur in China.

    PETA's shareholder resolution is available upon request. For more information, please visit PETA.org.

    Umm, what about Coach leather? Honestly it's all the same to me - leather, snakeskin, fur...


    ETA...Actually, I am surprised that PETA has anything to do with Coach.

    ^^^ Nah, makes perfect sense to me. Become a shareholder of a company that you have a bone to pick with, then you can have an actual say in their business. They are picking their battles, the fur is just their first hurdle. Fur isn't really the same as leather, in the sense that leather (not all leather) comes from animals that are used for food anyway. Foxes, mink, chinchillas, etc are not raised for food. They are simply raised for their fur.

    The methods used to acquire leather for bags, even if it is exotic skin is different than animals raised just for their fur. the 'extraction' method is pretty cruel...all to maintain the look and quality of the fur harvested.

    I am against fur and would not buy any fur product. As for PETA, they are one of the biggest hypocrites around....

    JMO, PETA should be going after more higher-end designers such as LV, Hermes, and Karl Lagerfield who obviously uses fur much more than Coach. Who probably mostly focuses on using Leather and Fabric for their bags.

    And Hermes secretly BREEDS Gators in their backyard just so they can turn them into handbags. I don't think I ever saw Coach use fur that much. Maybe I'm just blind.

    I'm sure they aren't happy about the fur "charms" for bags that seem to be popping up!

    Peta needs to get a life! Rather than trying to push their morals on other people. It's irritating!

    PETA's time would be better spent if they turned their attention to LOUIS VUITTON!

    If you go to Louis Vuitton's store on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and ask the right person, they'll get you their "limited edition" handbags that are made from ENDANGERED SPECIES! (No I am not joking!)

    This shouldn't be surprising because I hear they don't treat theHUMANS who work for them much better. There are a bunch of employees from the Beverly Hills store who are suing Louis Vuitton. One was fired because she complained about the sale of purses that were made from endangered species. Another was fired because she is a Jew and wanted Saturdays off. I heard another one was fired for asking to be paid for the hours she worked.
