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]

        “May both the motherfuckers who hunt them and use the products meet violent karma”.
        Eradication from the planet of these money hungry animal torturing murdering psychopathic monsters must be tortured to death and suffer in agony the same as their defenceless and innocent victims endure.
        It is time all money hungry human animal torturing and murdering lowlife monsters on our planet were hunted down and tortured to death. The lowlife human species is the vilest of all species on our planet.

    • Michelle Mitchell – I definately agree with your comment.

  8. Agree all comments skin these cruel cunts alive.

  9. Ann Alessi says:

    This company is boycotted in my world. Senseless torture and killing for no reason except love of money. Unconscionable lack of compassion or ethics. Humans make me sad.

  10. Shirley Lemieux says:

    It is a human shame that individuals or businesses have to resort to killing wildlife species for the sake of manufacturing clothing or other products. It speaks volumes about the CEO’s of these companies. They may appear to be well regarded among those who buy such products but the rest of us view these Owners and Companies as Evil and Sadistic for the gruesome and cruel killing of species for the sake of financial profits.

    I TOTALLY AGREE WITH Bev Woodburn and
    Michelle Mitchell –“ I definately agree with your comment.

  12. Every cruel evil punk involved in the torture/senseless cruelty killing of these and all other animals need to suffer the same abuse/death. Since that won’t happen they all need to be removed from society forever (like in SOLITARY AND each pay HUGE fines. These horrors MUST END NOW. All beings deserve to live the lives they were meant to live – EXCEPT for those that have no regard for the lives of others, ANIMAL OR HUMAN.. IN MY OPINIONO

  13. It is inhumane to kill any animal just to use them for the making of a garment!

  14. How are farms still legal?? Abusive, torture camps! The skin of a crocodile does not belong purse!
