Tell Burton Snowboards to Stop Selling Fur!

We need your help to convince Burton Snowboards to stop selling fur! The company used fur on its MKII jacket and has refused to meet with PETA to discuss adopting a fur-free policy despite PETA’s repeated requests for a meeting over the past several months. The fur industry kills millions of animals each year—including rabbits, minks, and foxes—in horribly cruel ways.

Animals on fur farms are kept—sometimes for years—in tiny, filthy cages, where they are surrounded by their own waste. They spend their entire miserable lives standing on the thin cage wires, never having a chance to dig, jump, or play. The way the farmers kill the animals would break your heart—some are killed by having their necks broken or their skulls beaten before being strung up by their legs and having their heads cut off, and others are killed by anal and vaginal electrocution. Yes, you read that right.

You can help convince Burton that selling fur is cruel and wrong. Send company officials a letter to let them know that you won’t buy Burton products until the company agrees to stop selling fur!
