Adidas has joined the Fur Free Retailer program, an international initiative of the Fur Free Alliance that aims to encourage companies to go fur-free. Adidas currently does not sell products made of animal fur, but the brand has nevertheless pledged to permanently renounce fur in order to underline its commitment to sustainable material innovations, the company said. Adidas is the 1,500th apparel company to join the Fur Free Retailer program, embracing the principle of animal welfare. The program currently runs in more than 25 countries around the world. The full list of companies that have joined the program is available online on the Fur Free Retailer website, and includes brands like Lacoste, H&M, Zara, The North Face and Vaude, among others.
