Think you'd look cool in that leather jacket? How cool would you feel if you knew that you could be wearing the skin of baby goats—or even the skin of a dog? Millions of animals— including cows, crocodiles, lizards, and snakes—are slaughtered every year for the global leather industry. A large percentage of imported crocodile shoe leather and other items made from wildlife come from endangered, illegally hunted animals. Humane treatment is not a priority among poachers and hunters who deal in the dirty exotic-leather trade.
By signing the pledge below, you'll send a powerful message not only to the cruel exotic-skins industry, but also to designers, retailers, and others who directly profit from the suffering caused by this cruel business. Take the pledge now to shed exotic skins from your wardrobe!

I don't believe in turning wildlife into tacky fashion items. There's nothing fashionable about capturing, beating, and skinning animals. By signing my name, I pledge never to wear the skin of crocodiles, snakes, lizards, or any other "exotic" animals.
