Email Response from Coach
Thank you for your recent e-mail concerning the use of fur.
We obtain our raw materials, including skins and pelts, from reputable suppliers who provide assurances that all species of animals used are authorized for distribution in our channels. Coach complies with all laws, national and international, related to the manufacture and importation of raw materials used in the production of our extensive product offering.
Coach respects the diverse beliefs of all of our consumers, including beliefs related to animal rights. If these beliefs conflict with Coach’s product offering, we respect an individual’s
right to choose whether or not to purchase with us.
Our suppliers also are required to comply with our Global Business Standards and Supplier Selection Guidelines, which are described in more detail on our website,www.coach.com.
If you need further assistance, do not hesitate to contact us.
We the petitioners did not ask you if your “raw” materials including skins and pelts were from reputable suppliers. Nor did we ask you if they were authorized for distribution or if Coach was following all laws, national and international.
We asked Coach to discontinue profiting from the blatant cruelty and death of innocent sentient beings and to instead respect the lives of all species.
Obviously this request does not comply with your Standards and Supplier Selection Guidelines and your response suggests that monetary gain is more important to Coach than running a ethical and honorable company that does not include barbarically torturing and violently killing animals for vanity and greed.
