Action Request: Petition

In 2008, clothing company BCBG joined other high-end brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein in a pledge to stop selling fur items. Unfortunately, BCBG has recently violated this promise by rabbit fur earmuffs, rabbit-fur ponchos and other fur items in their 2011 holiday fashion line.

Animals raised for fur live in cramped wire cages their entire lives. They are typically killed via cheap methods such as suffocation, neck-breaking, poisoning or anal/vaginal electrocution. In light of this cruelty, many celebrities, models and activists, including Michelle Obama, Ellen Degeneres and Lady Gaga refuse to wear fur.

As proven by fur-free high-fashion clothing lines, it is possible for clothing to be fashionable and functional without causing animals to suffer and be killed. Please boycott BCBG while they continue to sell fur and sign the petition to convince CEO Max Azria to permanently remove fur from the brand's collections.

Joseph Kony deserves to be arrested tomorrow. He\\\'s spent two decades committing horrific crimes against humanity. However, if he were to be arrested, would the children be safe? Not in the least. So, what can you do? 1. Only buy fair trade ...
