Vilda News: Inditex Bans Angora

1501105000_1_1_1_web

Another high-street brand decides to say no to the cruelty of angora – this time it’s Spanish fashion powerhouse Inditex, the home of Zara, Bershka, Stradivarius and Massimo Dutti that joins H&M, Topshop, Forever21, Lands’ End and many others in banning rabbit fur, after urges from PETA. See the truth about how angora is made here  (warning: graphic footage).

As if that wasn’t enough, Inditex is donating the remaining angora stock to charity Life for Relief and Development, which benefits Syrian refugees in Lebanon.

Here on Team Vilda we’re always very happy to see high-street brands standing up against animal cruelty. By donating the remaining stock, Inditex will be parting with a retail value of $878k, which clearly marks their stance on cruel fashion. Fast fashion and Inditex still have a long way to go in terms of human rights and the environment as well as animal cruelty – the brands still sell leather, wool and silk – but this is a step in the right direction.
