It's time to get into the fur-free spirit! November 23 (the day after Thanksgiving) is Fur-Free Friday—the day on which animal advocates all around the globe educate holiday shoppers about the cruel fur, leather, down, and wool industries. Every year, the fur industry heartlessly kills 50 million animals (many of whom are skinned alive), the leather industry slaughters more than a billion animals annually, the down industry often plucks geese alive in order to get their down, and the wool industry subjects sheep to painful shearing.
Last year, we kicked off the season with more than 50 registered Fur-Free Friday events around the world! Want to take part in the Fur-Free Friday festivities this year? Here's how!
