Urge Amazon.com to Stop Selling Fur


Today: Call-In Day: And Click Below To Send An E-mail!


Fur Free Friday is almost here and activists everywhere are hunkering down to finalize their plans for the most prolific Fur Free Friday yet! In fact, this year, events are taking place in over 75 cities on every continent besides Antarctica! Hopefully there is an event close enough for you to participate. If not, you can still help fur-bearing animals by asking Amazon.com to stop selling fur today!


Every year, over 50 million animals are brutally killed and skinned to make fur products. While many companies have pledged to go fur-free, other popular companies, such as Amazon.com, continue to cause and profit from animal suffering.


After receiving nearly 12,000 emails, Amazon.com’s competitor, Zappos.com, recently stopped selling all items with fur and pledged to stay fur-free. Now we need you to help us convince Amazon to follow Zappos' lead and become fur-free, as so many other retailers - including Nike, Gap, J. Crew, Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and Forever 21 - have.


What you can do:


Please click here to send an e-mail to Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos politely asking him to remove fur from the Amazon.com Web site permanently! Then follow up with a letter, fax and/or personal email:


Amazon.com Inc.
1200 12th Ave. S., Ste. 1200
Seattle, WA 98144
(206) 622-2335; press O to speak to an Amazon.com operator


Talking Points:

  • I was disappointed to learn that Amazon.com contributes to the suffering of millions of animals by selling real fur--and thrilled to learn that your competitor, Zappos.com, has recently gone fur-free.
  • As you know, animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages.
  • Fur farmers use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods available, including suffocation, electrocution, gassing, and poisoning.
  • With so many alternatives to animal fur available, it's time for your company to remove fur from its collections permanently. Whether it comes from minks, foxes, raccoons, chinchillas, beavers, rabbits, or lynxes, fur looks best on its original owners.
  • Please do the right thing: Follow Zappos' lead and ditch the fur.
