Join Joaquin Phoenix: Dishoom! Dishoom! Leather Sellers

Posted on by PETA

It’s time to Dishoom! exotic leather sellers. Joaquin Phoenix stars in an exclusive new video to get consumers to shed animal skins from their wardrobes by showing what happens to alligators, lizards and snakes before they are made into belts, bags and shoes.Fashion is a style statement and why shouldn’t it be? Who doesn’t want to look hip and cool? But fashion should be fun, not fatal. There’s nothing fun about exotic animals being raised and killed specifically for exotic leather accessories that cost animals their lives but which we wear once or twice to a party. Most people have no idea that snakes are often nailed by their heads to trees, and their bodies are cut open from one end to the other before they are skinned alive. Their heads writhe for several minutes after they are severed, and their hearts beat for up to 40 minutes after they have been removed. Alligators are often clubbed to death on filthy factory farms until they stop moving and die.Still not convinced that you should stop buying leather. Watch the video below.

Please help us Dishoom! leather sellers by pledging to quit wearing exotic skins. Want to do more to help? Join our Street Team to get the most up-to-date information on how you can help animals.
