Yesterday marked the third Canada Goose protest at the UK store in London within their first week of opening. Activists stood outside the doors in the rain for most of the day armed with placards, megaphones and laptops depicting the tortures that animals may endure in order to line and stuff ‘designer’ coats. No doubt the store suffered in terms of the profits they would have made on the days of the protests. Members of the public that didn’t realise dog fur is used for hood lining and geese feathers are plucked for coat stuffing were educated on these atrocities as they passed. And those that would have been Canada Goose customers thought better of it.
Meanwhile, Canada Goose claims that “Surge, PETA and other activist groups misrepresent the facts and use sensational tactics to try to illicit a reaction and mislead consumers. They ignore the strict government regulation and standards that are in place, as well as our commitment to ethical sourcing practices and responsible use of fur and down.” but fail to state what these ‘ethical sourcing practices’ are and how they are able to source the fur and feathers from murdered animals ethically.
Protests are happening at the Regent Street store every Saturday, so if you’d like to come along, please check out the Facebook event page here.
