Following its fur ban, online retailer Yoox Net-a-Porter has also decided to no longer sell items that contains angora wool, according to animal rights organization PETA.
Second ban in short amount of time
PETA is thrilled about Yoox Net-a-Porter’s decision as it firmly believes that angora wool can only be obtained through animal cruelty. “By introducing a ban on angora in line with its ban on fur, YOOX NET-A-PORTER is securing its place as the premier luxury fashion destination – now and into the future”, PETA said in a press release.
Earlier this month, Yoox Net-a-Porter revealed it would no longer sell fur items, to help lower its environmental impact. Other companies, like Armani and Zara, had already done similarly.
"We have a strong sense of responsibility and recognize we need to contribute positively to society. Our goal is to act as a catalyst for industrial change through a range of initiatives, partnerships and innovations”, Yoox Net-a-Porter’s head of sustainability, Matteo James Moroni, said at the time.
