Stop H&M from Using Cruelly Sourced Leather

Target: Karl-Johan Persson, CEO of H&M

Goal: Stop H&M from using leather in its products.

Popular clothing brand H&M has already made a commitment to protect animals by no longer using fur and angora wool in its products, and claims that no animal should suffer for clothing. However, the company still uses leather for many of its products. It is time H&M drop all its animal products and go completely cruelty-free.

Cows used for leather face a variety of hardships daily. They are often confined in small, crowded spaces with limited access to food and clean water. Typically, the cows are branded, de-horned, castrated and have their tails docked, all without the use of painkillers. After these painful ordeals, the cows are shipped to slaughterhouses where many are skinned while still alive.

Sign this petition to demand H&M stop using leather in its products. The company already uses fake, cruelty-free leather for many of its products. It is time to make that the industry standard and stay true to the company’s commitment of preventing unnecessary animal cruelty.


Dear Mr. Persson,

H&M has made some recent changes in order to stop needless animal suffering by no longer using fur and angora wool on any of its products. This was great news to hear, but unfortunately your company still uses leather, which comes from the bodies of tortured cows.

Cows used for leather face a variety of hardships and are typically treated as objects rather than living, feeling beings. They are often kept in small, cramped spaces where disease spreads rampant and access to food and water is limited. They are also usually castrated, de-horned, branded, and have their tails docked. After this torture, the cows are shipped to slaughterhouses, where many are skinned alive.

Not only is leather incredibly cruel, but it is also very toxic to the environment. Your company already utilizes fake, cruelty-free leather and it is time to start using that material for all products. As you have said before, no animal should suffer for fashion.
