Philadelphia – Tomorrow, social media influencers Angela Martini, Francesca Farago, Megan Lourdes, and Tanaya Henry—who’ve a mixed attain of greater than 7 million followers—will confront City Outfitters executives on the firm’s digital annual assembly and ask the next query (full particulars seem beneath) on PETA’s behalf: “When will URBN leaders take our era’s issues significantly and cease promoting cruelly obtained and environmentally harmful animal-derived supplies?”
When: Tuesday, June 7, 12 midday
The place: City Outfitters, 110 S. 36th St., Philadelphia
On the similar time, supporters in cow, sheep, and goose costumes will increase a ruckus outdoors the City Outfitters retailer on S. 36th Road, and provocative posters by road artist Praxis are already plastered all through downtown Philly and close to the URBN headquarters within the Navy Yard. It’s all a part of PETA’s marketing campaign calling on City Outfitters manufacturers to go for eco-friendly vegan supplies and depart alpaca fleece, wool, leather-based, down, mohair, cashmere, and all different animal-derived supplies on their authentic house owners.
“When progressive younger consumers be taught that delicate animals are tormented and killed for clothes, they’re keen to carry manufacturers accountable,” says PETA Govt Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is pushing City Outfitters to take heed to its clients; cease stealing animals’ skins, fleece, and feathers; and change to promoting solely sustainable vegan supplies.”
PETA—whose motto reads, partially, that “animals aren’t ours to put on”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
