Stop Slaughtering Crocodiles for Handbags

Target: Axel Dumas, Chief Executive Officer of Hermes

Goal: Commit to ending sales of products made from animal skins.

Business is bustling at French luxury goods maker Hermes. The company is opening several new factories as their profit line soars. Tragically, these gains come at the expense of countless animals every year.

Hermes received a grade of zero on a recent animal welfare report card, making it the worst offender among luxury brands that have already set the bar so low. In order to make many of its in-demand handbags and other products, the company uses the skins of exotic wild and farmed animals more than any of its competitors. In fact, Hermes announced plans for a crocodile farm in Australia that would hold 50,000 crocodiles. Such farms have long been the target of fierce criticism. Aside from the deadly fate awaiting inhabitants, the farms are also often cited for serious cases of neglect and abuse.

Sign the petition below to demand this influencer use its power to set a better standard for animal welfare.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Dumas,

France was one of the first countries in the world to recognize the sentience of animals. Increasingly, clothing and accessory makers around the globe have realized the inhumanity and needlessness of fur farming. Hermes is failing the positive examples set by both its homeplace and its industry.

According to an extensive investigation, you are literally failing…”earning” a grade of zero for your approach, or lack thereof, to animal welfare. You have made pledges and promises to reverse this trend, but you continue to manufacture and sell the very remnants of exploited and slaughtered animals. Until you make a sincere commitment to stop the creation and sale of products made from exotic animal skins, you cannot claim any gains on issues of animal cruelty.

Reputation matters. As more eco-conscious generations continue to emerge, consider the image you want to present to your consumers of tomorrow. Evolve, or risk extinction.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    STOP these greedy pos!!! No one should profit from taking any life!!!!!

  2. disgusting greed lock them up

  3. For all who think this is OK because they are not wild but farmed, google how they die if you have a strong stomach. Hermes needs to be boycotted until this shit ends. Use you money to do good.

  4. Why can’t we live on this planet with animals instead of killing them. Why would anyone want to carry around a purse that an animal had to give his life??? Killing an animal for fashion should be outlaw!

  5. CROCODILES are NOT the MONSTERS. They do not capture babies, kill their mothers, incarcerate them for life in filthy conditions deprive them of any natural way of life or family then brutally TORTURE them to DEATH for PROFIT🤑! IT IS HUMANS WHO DO THIS TO CROCODILES AND OTHER SENTIENT CREATURES. THERE IS ONLY ONE SPECIES THAT CAN JUSTIFIABLY BE CALLED “MONSTERS”, that is THE HUMAN SPECIES, SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE IMPENDING DESTRUCTION OF THIS PLANET AND ITS INHABITANTS!!!!! YES, TIME FOR GREEDY, IMMORAL HUMANS TO STOP PERSECUTING OTHER INNOCENT SPECIES and START EVOLVING!👎🤑

  6. Stop killer bug crocodiles for handbags!

  7. Nadine+brundage says:

    Unbelievable cruelty so some dumb ass, heartless subhuman can have a handbag made from these animals. People who find it necessary to wear animal skins are the lowest form of life. In todays times the only ones who should be wearing animal skin and fur is the animal it belongs on. Totally against this unnecessary cruelty.

  8. Shawna Flottemesch says:

    Stop using animals. Use humans who want these things. Stop Stop or cook humans

  9. I bet their minds would change if we were killing them for hand bags….

  10. There is no end to human greed and evil!

  11. Hermes is bad enough, but the other problem is the stupid selfish people who BUY these horrible products without a care how so many poor creatures suffers.
    ALL of this stuff can be made from vegan materials and could look identical without killing anything.

  12. I agree! It’s despicable and cats are beaten on their heads to death with bats or boiled alive in this trade. Go vegan!

  13. Vanity, greed and self-involved braggarts wear these bags or are involved in this filthy business. All skins are from suffering and tortured creatures: leather and fur. Wear less or none of these skins.

  14. THIS DESPICABLE ACT OF CRUELTY AGAINST THESE ANIMALS MUST STOP. ALL ANIMALS FEEL PAIN, SUFFERING AND TRAUMA, JUST LIKE WE DO. THUS IS NOT RIGHT. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. USING ANY PART OF AN ANIMAL FOR CLOTHING ITEMS, ACCESSORIES, OR COATS/SWEATERS IS UNACCEPTABLE TODAY. THERE IS NO EXCUSE OR REASON TO MAKE ANY ANIMAL SUFFER AND DIE FOR THEIR FUR OR ANY PART OF THEIR BODIES.

  15. Barbara Garrison says:

    The hearts of men have grown cold. Today, we’re more aggressive, less compassionate, more violent, and less kind. Animals have always been the target of our perversion, hate, sickness, and greed. I have always had a heart of compassion for all living things, and I’ve signed tens of thousands of petitions, but the reality is, before kingdoms change, men must change. There will always be evil beings out there. We who love animals will have to keep fighting for them. They have no voice except through us.

  16. Michelle Stewart says:

    It must be made illegal all over the world to kill animals to make clothing, shoes, and accessories

  17. Patricia+Orlando says:

    I totally agree with what you say👍👍

  18. Maria Bertrand says:

    YES STOP BUYING ANY ANIMAL PRODUCT! THIS IS NOT IN ANY WAY NECESSARY! ONLY A SELFIS, VICIOUS PERSON VOID OF ANY COMPASSION WOULD WEAR OR NEED ANY ANIMAL PRODUCT.

    AGREE WITH TERESA…
    EACH COUNTRIES’, WORLDWIDE ANIMAL RIGHTS ASSOCIATIONS SHOULD HUNT DOWN ALL THESE COMPANIES THAT CONTINUE TO EXPLOIT ANIMALS …AND SHUT THEM DOWN …FINE THEM AND USE ALL THE MONIES FOR ANIMAL SANCTUARIES.

    So disgusted in general with HUMANS. STOP EATING MEAT!

  19. Jaime+Perez says:

    Animals are NOT ours to eat, wear or abuse for any reason!

  20. Myrna Burdick says:

    Mr. Dumas, I hope your wife and kids are shunned by humane people who have enough sense to buy faux leather goods.

    How in the world can you live with yourself –oh yes, you’re making lots of money. But that money does not make you, your stinking family nor anyone who works for you worth being alive.

    While others in the fashion world are moving away from murdering
    animals, your trade name and family name is truly SHIT!
