Save the kangaroos: Join us for a global protest against Adidas on December 2nd and 3rd!
Kangaroos are the victims of the largest commercial slaughter of wildlife on the planet. This slaughter is being driven by companies like Adidas
Every night across Australia kangaroos are brutally killed. It happens where no one is watching and whilst Adidas makes false claims on its website and in its media statements that killing kangaroos is humane, it is anything but.
Kangaroos are hunted, terrorised, maimed, wounded, shot and killed. Baby kangaroos are bashed to death on bull bars or left to die a slow lonely death without their mother – all to make a pair of football/soccer boots. As one of the largest buyers of kangaroo skin, adidas is driving this killing.
OUR PROTESTS AGAINST NIKE WORKED. THIS TIME WE ARE COMING FOR ADIDAS AND IT's GLOBAL
As part of the 'Kangaroos are Not Shoes' campaign, the Animal Justice Party along with animal organisations across Australia and the world disrupted Nike's business by holding multiple protests outside their stores.
In March this year, Nike and Puma announced that they will no longer use the skins of slaughtered kangaroos to make football/soccer boots. In September, New Balance announced they will also stop sourcing skins from the slain bodies of kangaroos.
But Adidas has not. In fact, Adidas has doubled down, stating they will continue to use kangaroo skin in their football/soccer boots.
Using the body parts of a wild native animal to make shoes is not only obscene but completely unnecessary. Adidas is currently using a wide range of synthetics they absolutely do not need to use kangaroo.
