Why Torrey DeVitto buys only faux skins and urges others to do the same

American actress Torrey DeVitto is best known for her roles in Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries and One Tree Hill. Aside from her acting career, DeVitto is an animal advocate and works closely with PETA to stand against animal cruelty.

DeVitto thinks that wearing real fur in modern times is despicable. Killing animals for fashion is pointless especially when there are so many cruelty-free options nowadays. DeVitto also thinks it’s important to adopt animals from shelters and offer help, like volunteering and becoming involved by signing different petitions and making your voice heard.

Recently DeVitto teamed up with PETA to play the role of a crocodile and raise awareness about the exotic-skins industry. The actress says she loves participating in the campaign because it gives her the power to speak to people and to spread awareness. She says it takes three to four alligators or crocodiles to make just one bag. Instead she urges everyone to opt for cruelty-free alternatives that are even more beautiful and perfect for everyday use.

What do you think of the campaign? Do you think it’s necessary to kill animals for fashion? Share your thoughts.
