Behind every ostrich-, crocodile-, and alligator-skin accessory is a short, miserable life of deprivation and a violent death—yet American Express allows and even encourages its credit card holders to redeem points for items made from exotic-animal skins.
Other animals deemed "exotic"—including snakes and lizards—are also killed barbarically and often skinned alive to make accessories.
Animals' skins belong to them and no one else. Please urge American Express to replace the exotic-animal skin items in its rewards store with products that don't exploit animals. In doing so, it would be joining many other companies—including Adidas, Ann Inc., H&M, Hugo Boss, Nike, Overstock.com, Puma, and VF Corporation—that understand that there's no excuse for supporting such blatant cruelty and that have severed ties with the exotic-skins trade.
