Target: Jeff Conrad, Vice President of Acura
Goal: Stop Acura from using leather in its cars.
Acura is a popular car manufacturer that uses leather for many of the interior details of its cars. Leather comes from the bodies of tortured animals and it is time to stop supporting this cruel industry.
Most people associate leather with cows, but it can also come from pigs, sheep, goats, and even cats and dogs, depending on where the supply comes from. Animals trapped in the leather industry are often beaten, dragged, branded and neglected. It is not uncommon for animals to have open wounds and injuries left untreated. After about three years of pain and misery, the animals are killed and skinned.
Sign this petition and demand Acura stop using leather in its vehicles. Leather is not a necessity and it is time to stop treating it as such.
Dear Mr. Conrad,
Many of your vehicles contain leather in their interiors. Leather comes from the bodies of tortured animals and this cruel industry should no longer be supported.
Cows, sheep, goats, pigs and even cats and dogs are used for leather depending on where the supplier is stationed. Animals trapped within this cruel industry are often beaten, shocked, dragged, branded and severely neglected. It is not uncommon for these animals to have open wounds or untreated injuries. After enduring this pain and torture for three years, the animals are killed and skinned.
Please consider no longer using leather in your cars. There are many cruelty-free alternative materials available for use and it is time to start using them like Tesla, BMW and Lexus have. No animal should die for something so unnecessary.
