INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

Nordstrom is a fourth generation family business that has a solid customer service reputation, and a name that evokes a sense of responsibility and success. Why then does the Nordstrom Family continue to sully its reputation with ties to the fur industry?

Every year over 50 million wild animals are killed for fur.


The anal electrocution of a fox on a fur farm...for "fashion"?

An animal suffers and dies for fur - whether it's trim, full length or accessory. Don't buy fur or fur trimmed products.

Help Nordstrom make the right choice by speaking up when shopping at Nordstrom. Please politely tell their associates: "Please stop selling fur." Ask for a comment card on which you can write the same sentiment.

On fur farms, life in a tiny cage leads animals to self-mutilate, frantically pace, spin in circles, and even sometimes cannibalize their cagemates. In the end, they are killed by cruel slaughter methods including crude gassing, anal electrocution, neck breaking and poisoning.

There's no such thing as green or 'eco' fur: It takes 20 times more energy to produce a fur garment from a fur farm than a faux fur garment.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
