This is NOT Fashionable.

We tend to keep our topics "light", but this is important...

Please be responsibly fashionable.
There are some things that we just don't "need' in order to be fashionable.
Radical hate message do no good. Please instead "vote" by using your purchasing dollars on alternative items to stop the demand, or with other manufacturers, and by using your voice, your pen, and your keyboard.

The following information comes to us with thanks from our friends at Recy_Vintage.


Designers Who Use Seal Fur and Skin

A number of well-known fashion designers have used seal fur and skins in their collections during the past several fashion seasons. By using seal skin and fur in items such as coats, tunics, dresses, shoes, vests, jackets, handbags, pillows, and even lamp shades, these designers are providing the Canadian government and sealers with an economic incentive to continue the hunt.

The hunting of baby seals has been outlawed in the US. Seal hunting is allowed to indigenous people

Send a letter to these designers and politely request that they make their fashion more compassionate by ending the use of seal fur. Though the use of seal fur and skin is banned in the United States, these designers use seal products in their European and International Collections. Here are some points you can make.

Send your letters (if you live in the United States and you send your letters to Italy, postage will be $0.80) to the following design houses:

The annual massacre started today at 6 am and will go on until the Canadian Government's quota for 325,000 dead baby seals!!!!! (And probably many more as the government doesn't do a count on the dead seals.) It's barbaric beyond words and those baby haven't done anything to deserve this!!! Their misfortune is that they are born with this skin that humans INSIST on wearing as coats, handbags, hats and shoes.

Please don't stop fighting the Canadian Government!!!!

Start by letting the world know, inform yourself fully so you have the answer when people ask you questions. Remember information is power!!!

Repost this bulletin and sign the petition here:

Together we can do this. Never lose hope. never stop fighting.
As hundreds of innocent baby seals are getting butchered in the most horrific ways, we must keep fighting, protesting, calling, boycotting.

Keep fighting Canada. Keep fighting cruel minds.
Never, ever give up!!!!!!

Here is the email address for the Prime Minister Harper of Canada.

Email and let him know how senseless and brutal the slaughter of the seals is, but be diplomatic about it!

Radical hate messages do NO good!

And please repost this bulletin!
