Though I don't wear clothing or anything else made from any type of animal, thank you. That was pretty hard to watch, but sometimes that's the only way to get through to people.

This is a very strong video and needed to be shown. This is the reason I never wear fur/animal skins, never have et never will. Thank you Simone for exposing the truth on animal skins. Noté et signé too.

My wardrobe never did and never will contain anything made from animal skins. Not even from cows.

There are so many alternatives that people with a conscience adheres to.

Odin Torchwood, the truth has been known for decades, people just tend to ingnore the knowledge in order to look "good".

In fact, those who wear animal skins in any way whatsoever, in my not so humble opinion, STINK!

There is no such thing in my closet or my home. Never has been.
Even when I was young I thought Alligator/Crocodile cowboy boots, rattlesnake skin belts, anything like that was disgusting.
I signed the pledge. I'm proud to say I have nothing to give up.
I could not watch the video. ugh.
Thanks so much Simone.

Never bought any kind of skins - I think it is thoroughly disgusting. I didn't watch the video, I'm so sickened with what people do to animals, that I didn't want to watch more evil acts. I'm still worked up from the article posted on care2 that possibly lab testing is ok for medical reasons. No way, no how, is it acceptable to use and abuse any animal for any reason.

Et pourquoi pas bientot de la peau d'étres humains...????? je dis Honte à ceux qui osent porter de la fourrure, des peaux et tout autres tenues venant de la vie d'un animal....mes enfants et moi, nous contentons de bien peu plus sain!!!!!! je préférerai marcher "nue" plutot que de mettre de la peau animale sur moi.... je suis végétalienne et ce, pas pour rien!!!

I already have sworn off wearing animal skins, using purses made from reptiles, etc. The only things I do have and wear is vintage jacket and belt. REUSE, right, but I always explain.

Part two to above, maybe rather than wear the vintage items, I should donate them to a museum? If anyone knows of one that would want them, I would be happy to.
