Do you know what Gucci did?

The policy change will come into effect in 2018

Dear kind friends around the world,

A friend shared this article with me which I wanted to share with you all because it is such good news. One of the global fashion powerhouses which is Gucci is going to stop using fur for its fashion in 2018. Not only that but whatever they have remaining which is fur, they will auction off and donate the proceeds to organisations against animal cruelty.

I was so happy to hear this news! It is good when brands are self-aware and recognise the role they play in providing a demand for these cruel industries. These lead to the suffering of many animals before their painful deaths.

For such a huge global brand to make this decision must mean there is a demand for cruelty-free fashion, and they know they can remain a viable business even if they don’t offer fur. So it is also good that when consumers apply pressure to other brands, to let them know they will still buy into the clothing even if there is no fur. From the side of the consumer and the side of the producer, both can work together in this way to eradicate fur farms and cruelty to animals.

Dare I hope that in time, Gucci will also stop using leather in their products? In the meantime, I applaud Gucci for taking this stand against animal cruelty, and showing people that fashion can be beautiful without the torture of another living being. In this day and age with technology for warmth and heating, and so many textiles that are just as effective, there is no reason why fur is a necessity. Let’s hope more and more fashion houses follow in Gucci’s example, and take up the mantle of cruelty-free fashion.

Please lets stop hurting animals and stop eating them immediately. By doing so we save our health, our environment, animals and we also save our planet. Please share this and create more awareness on social media for the voiceless animals who suffer so much.

Gucci boss pledges firm to go fur free in 2018

(Source: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-41590946)

Luxury fashion brand Gucci will go fur-free from next year, the company’s chief executive has announced.

Marco Bizzarri told a London College of Fashion event that the move was part of a commitment to “sustainability”.

The Italian fashion house will make the changes from the brand’s spring-summer 2018 collection and auction off all of its remaining animal fur items.

Campaigners hailed the move as a “huge game-changer”, but a fur trade body said the decision made “no sense”.

The change means Gucci will no longer use mink, coyote, raccoon dog, fox, rabbit and all others species specially bred or caught.

Mr Bizzarri said: “Being socially responsible is one of Gucci’s core values, and we will continue to strive to do better for the environment and animals.”

He said the new approach was in part thanks to Gucci’s creative director, Alessandro Michele, who was appointed in 2015.

“In selecting a new creative director, I wanted to find someone who shared a belief in the importance of the same values. I sensed that immediately on meeting Alessandro for the first time,” Mr Bizzarri added.

Gucci-2

Mr Bizzarri made the announcement during a talk at the London College of Fashion on Wednesday

Gucci’s remaining animal fur items will be sold at auction, with the proceeds going to animal rights organisations Humane Society International and LAV.

Kitty Block, president of Humane Society International, welcomed the brand’s “compassionate decision”.

“Gucci going fur-free is a huge game-changer,” she said.

“For this Italian powerhouse to end the use of fur because of the cruelty involved will have a huge ripple effect throughout the world of fashion.”

Gucci will become part of the Fur Free Alliance – an international group of organisations which campaigns on animal welfare and promotes alternatives to fur in the fashion industry.

Joh Vinding, the alliance’s chairman, said: “Gucci is taking a bold stand for animals, showing the world that the future of fashion is fur-free.”

But the International Fur Federation, which represents the global fur industry, said it was surprised by the decision.

The trade body’s CEO, Mark Oaten, said: “Claiming they have done this for environmental reasons makes no sense.

“Fur is the most natural fashion item. It comes from nature and lasts for decades, unlike chemical-based fabrics or fake fur.”

Gucci’s decision follows that of its Italian fashion rival Armani, which announced last year that it would no longer feature fur in its collections.

Fur farming was banned in the UK in 2000.

    Animals show love for humans! Cow, lions, apes, dogs, bears, parrots and more can all be very affectionate and show surprising emotions when it comes to expressing their love for people. An emotional animals hugging humans video.

    It is nice to know a big brand like Gucci will not produce any fur product anymore. I have seen some documentaries on how fur is taken from the animals, they are skinned alive, it is very very cruel. I am glad Gucci is taking this approach to help stop animal cruelty.

    How can it be beautiful if what we wear is from killing an innocent life? Also, In the process of getting the fur, the animals suffer tremendously. I am sure the fur will carry some negative energy with it. How can our mind be at peace?

    I believe Gucci will be able to influence the buying behaviour and mentality of the consumers and to help create awareness in animal cruelty. I wish more brands will follow the footstep of Gucci, be more conscious to our environment.

    It is definitely a great step in the right direction for Gucci and it would be much better if Gucci did go all the way to eliminate all fur from all its fashion line. Unfortunately, Gucci defines “animal fur” as “any animal skin, or part thereof, with hair or fur fibers attached thereto, either in its raw or processed state or the pelt of any animal killed for the animal’s fur.”

    In short, whilst it excludes exotic animals such as mink, fox, rabbit, karakul lamb and raccoon dog, domesticated animals such as lamb, goat and even alpaca can still be used are not off-limits as Gucci’s new products. It would be ideal if Gucci extended such compassion to all animals but that being said, it already a huge leap by Gucci to commit compared to other major luxury fashion brands who have been sluggish in embracing fur-free commitments. Indeed, Gucci’s (conditional) fur free policy marks a game-changer for the whole luxury fashion industry to follow or improve on.

    It is great to see that fashion giant Gucci has decided to take animal fur out of the list of ingredients for their fashion products.
    For years people have used animal fur for hats, coats, and shoes, indeed some of it is comfortable, but is it worth it? For your comfort one or more being died a horrible death. Most of us don’t even stop to think about where our fur products come from, all we know is that they are stylish and make us look rich.

    I really hope that in future all fashion brands will follow Gucci’s footsteps and remove fur from all of their products.

    This is landmarked and Gucci is one of those conspicuous fashion houses that uses a lot of fur in its luxurious creations. There are a lot of alternatives and I feel fur is very easy to replace and if such a big player like Gucci can retract from using fur, so can many other fashion houses. It would be good if this would lead towards leather as well and fashion can just be completely cruelty-free. Furthermore, a little bit of money can be poured into research to develop a viable alternative to fur and leather. That would really be fashion forward!

    Lets all be kind to other sentient beings especially animals.

    Thank you so much, Gucci for showing the way.

  9. Samfoonheei on Oct 23, 2017 at 1:25 pm

    Its a great news that with Gucci the major fashion brand has taken fur off in its collections.
    Its remaining animal fur items are then auction off. Gucci has indeed a compassionate decision after Armani the other Italian fashion rival did it . More and more people are aware of harm done on animals just for their fur. And more cruelty-free fashion, are in demand in the fashion market.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this great news.

  10. Su Ming on Oct 22, 2017 at 10:58 pm

    Well Done Gucci. In fact by doing this, I am sure more brands will follow suits and more and more consumers are more conscious in what they buy and wear or carry.

    Stella McCartney is other brand which also does not use leather or any animal type of skin on her products.

    To more of such animal friendly brands to come!

  11. Callista on Oct 22, 2017 at 1:12 am

    Glad to hear that, at least one of the branded companies ‘Gucci’ has stop fur products. It would be much better if they can stop producing leather products.
    I really wish to see another company will work together in this way to eradicate cruelty to animals.
    We also have to play a part to stop consuming and stop using animal base products.

  12. Lin Mun on Oct 21, 2017 at 9:30 pm

    This is great move by Gucci and I hope it will encourage more brands to follow suit. We do not need to have animals fur on our body to look pretty and to prevent us from cold. We have many options. Choose one that does not harm and bring suffering to other beings.

  13. Uncle Eddie on Oct 20, 2017 at 11:34 am

    As per the happy and relieving announcement that the luxury fashion brand Gucci will go ‘Fur-free’ from next year in 2018, campaigners hailed the move as a “Huge game-changer!” The change means Gucci will no longer use mink, coyote, Raccoon, dog, fox, rabbit and all other species specially bred or caught for the use of their fur which is being socially responsible as one of Gucci’s core values! “We will continue to strive to do better for the Environment and the animals, Mr.Bizzarri has assured. He also directed part of thanks should go to Gucci’s creative director, Alessandra Michele, who was appointed in 2015, in whom he has sensed that Mr Alessandra Michele will share the importance of this same belief with him, the first time when Bizzari met Alessandro! Kitty Block, President of Humane Society International, in welcoming the Italian Gucci’s “Compassionate Decision” has even delightfully remarked, “To end the use of fur because of the cruelty involved, will have a huge ripple effect throughout the World of Fashion”. The righteous man is happy in this World and the next. He is happy when he thinks about the good he has done and happier seeing the good path ahead, as stipulated in the Dhammapada, which says, “To do only good, to avoid doing harm, to purify the heart is the way of the Buddhas.” Yes, fashion is said to be beautiful, but of course without the torture of another living being!” Please stop hurting more animal beings and let us pray that more fashion houses follow such compassionate actions of Gucci’s classic example for the benefit the silenced sufferings of all animals.

    The few minutes a day we spend on social media creating awareness for animals who cannot speak is pure spiritual and humanistic practice because we are trying to alleviate pain from another sentient beings and that makes us more spiritual and that makes us more spiritual and more humane.

    It is great to see more and more big corporations are incorporate the more humane approach into their business. It also goes to show the humane approach is becoming mainstream. I wish more and more big corporations will follow this footstep.

    There is absolutely no need to abuse animals for self benefits.

    Being a socially responsible company or individual is the way to go. Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this and will social media this and share it with others.

    Is good news. It would be even better if all fasion industries stop exploiting animals. When there is no supply, there wont be demand.

  20. Jason on Oct 18, 2017 at 11:12 pm

    This is a great news to animals. Gucci, a leading fashion company going to stop fur clothing now. I just watched a video about the people peel off the fox skin. So cruelty.
    Even though we own any fur clothing, we shouldn’t wear it because this will create a desire cause to others to buy more fur clothing .
    Human beings are very intelligent but we shouldn’t take away animals rights to live in this planet.
    Thanks Rinpoche sharing.

    This is such a good news, hope this helps inspire other larger fashion brands to follow their step. As the Mr Bizzarri said, this actually helps innovation and raise awareness about the suffering of animals. This decision is widely applauded by animals welfare groups and Fur Free Alliance; because fashion with the stains of animal blood, with animals in the fur industry subjected to intense cruelty, living their entire lives in small cages is just not matching with beauty.

    Luxury fashion or look is not necessary doing with using animal fur. What the International Fur Federation CEO Mark Oaten said: “Fur is the most natural fashion item. It comes from nature and lasts for decades, unlike chemical-based fabrics or fake fur”, may be has his point but to have 100 million animals tortured and killed a year just for the “lasting” natural beauty is not justify. There are so many natural material can be used, creatively; and with advanced technology to come up with fashionable clothes without killing.

  22. Irene Lim on Oct 18, 2017 at 5:48 pm

    This is certainly a rejoicing news to hear Gucci’s compassionate decision on assuming responsibility for a cruel free fashion. This move can be infectious for other fashion designers to follow the move.

    Fabric made from synthetics can be as beautiful and usable as animal skin. We are no longer cave men, our technology has improved immensely and we can opt for alternative materials which are sustainable and cruel free for our wearables.

  23. Stella Cheang on Oct 18, 2017 at 3:42 pm

    This is a more than excellent news! To have fur completely removed from esteemed fashion brands like Gucci and Armani is a strong message; it creates the much-needed awareness among the affluents on being a compassionate consumer! I hope one day Gucci and the big brands will also cease using leather in their collections. In fact, Gucci has several canvas collections that are in high demand.

    Gucci shows the world that it can be fashionable and socially responsible at the same time. Good move to win the hearts of the fashionista of a new generation!

  24. JP on Oct 18, 2017 at 2:32 pm

    This is such great news! Animals should not suffer at all regardless of what eloquent reasons are given. As one of the world leading consumer brands, Gucci wants to be ahead of the industry. Social responsibilty is something that is underdeveloped but much needed.

    As people nowadays have more access to information, the millenials are also more socially aware of the dire situations that previous generations have created due to greed. Hence, it makes business sense for Gucci to follow Armani’s direction in making such a bold move of protraying themselves to be compassionate, kind and caring. These are qualities that inspire the world.

    Whatever the reasons, it’s definitely wonderful news!

    Jan 30, 2015 – Gray wolves were reintroduced into Yellowstone National Park in 1995, resulting in a trophic cascade through the entire ecosystem.

    A documentary, Wolves of Yellowstone by National Geographic Society (https://www.nationalgeographic.org/media/wolves-yellowstone/) in 2015 documented the turn around that almost extinct wolves made to Yellowstone Park. From being near extinct and the entire park’s ecosystem turned around. So, all animals play an important role in the circle of life.

    So, eliminating fur from their fashion collection, they not only stop suffering of animals,they are also aiding in the turn around of the ecosystem of the planet. We only have one Earth to live in. Twice the gain.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for bringing this news of Gucci going fur-free and its implications to everyone’s attention.

      The news that Your Eminence shared is just wonderful. Gucci have created the causes , on their own free will, the first step to reducing harm to animals in their quest for profits. I rejoice on hearing this great news and hope that this first step will be emulated by other fur / mink manufacturers to also take the first step in reducing and eventually to eliminate suffering to animals. The next big hurdle for Gucci will be to reduce and perhaps eliminate leather products.

      Thank you

    There are no second chances in life, except to feel remorse. Chances are given only once I do believe. If there is, it will be a miracle or considered you are truly lucky. Once you lose it , there is no turning back. One always have a choice and chance, grab it when opportunity come or else it will be too late. Having it , appreciate it once for all before our time is out. Learning , practicing Dharma is the best choice
    I have chosen even though I started late. Its never too late after all ,I found Tsem Rinpoche’s blog and since then it have changed my life.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful inspirational quote. Everything is from within ourselves. We gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which we come across. Courage is knowing what not to fear. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Compassion is the desire that moves the individual self to widen the scope of its self-concern to embrace the whole of the universal self.
    We practice compassion, kindness , caring and respect each other in whatever situation, turning negatives to positive.

    Timely advice for us. We have little control over the circumstances around us. Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing it. Live our life with the understanding of how precious every single day would be. Our time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life . Engage in those essential activities such as learning and practicing Dharma that will give us true purpose, clarity, and meaningful in life. All of us are worthy if we transform ourselves, turning negatives to positives, laziness to working hard towards our goal in life.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The Miraculous White Tara of the Majapahit Empire

    Supriyono lived in a village in Indonesia’s East Java Province. In early October 2011, he dreamt of a bluish-red dragon surrounding his village before it finally dived into an old well. Supriyono took the dream as a sign and located the old well in the Brahu Temple complex in the Trowulan sub-district of East Java Province.

    Tales with My Lama: A Snapshot of Rinpoche’s Room

    Tsem Rinpoche had always been a private person and his bedroom was basically his personal domain. However, as a lama or a spiritual guide, Rinpoche would allow a number of his students and friends to intrude upon his personal space for gatherings, meetings and sometimes just to talk or watch a movie on his computer. Many people are probably curious about what Rinpoche’s room looks like and would perhaps like a snapshot that reveals a little bit more of Rinpoche’s world.

    Thank you Pastor David for this very well-written article. It describes Rinpoche’s room and life just as what I have the honoured to have observed with my own eyes. Everything Rinpoche did was for the long term benefit of others, and the equanimity he applied onto everyone including the animals impressed me tremendously. If you think Rinpoche treated his mumus like prince and princess, that’s the way he treated all of us. If you think Rinpoche was very strict to His students, this is how he trained his mumus too. If you think he is very “OCD” in planting Dharma imprints on us, he did exactly the same to his mumus and all the animals. Not only that, he would tirelessly use many different methods and approaches according to every single individual’s levels of comprehension to make sure they will get the maximum benefits out of his skilfull teachings, either now or in the future. This is the guru who made me value the importance of Dharma.

    Thank you for the sharing , it has very informative information. It is necessary to take serious action to prevent environment and save earth, to reuse and recycle. We should correct our mistakes, selfishness towards our environment. Every single action taken is to maintain the originality of the environment, if for our betterment to make live healthy and safe from pollution.

    Though government has formulated various schemes and established laws to prevent and to save the nature environment. Yet it should be still the duty of each individually to protect it for our future generations, as we are the people consuming its benefits.

    It is hard to believe but true that only a little positive movements by everyone may bring a huge change in the declining environment. Glad to read about the inventors ideas to protect the nature and help to save our environment. A good article to be shared with family and friends.

    “NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Humane law enforcement agents of the ASPCA arrested a Queens woman accused of animal neglect.

    Acting on an anonymous complaint, ASPCA agents went to the residence of 47-year-old Ana Herra and found a female mixed breed dog named Julie, who was in “terrible condition.”

    According to Joseph Pentangelo, the Assistant Director for Humane Law Enforcement at the ASPCA, when authorities came upon the dog, she was “very weak” and “in need of medical attention.”

    Pentangelo told 1010 WINS Saturday that the dog had to be euthanized after having a physical exam at Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital.

    “Her health was very compromised and she had not had veterinary attention in a long period of time,” he said.

    Herra was charged with one count of misdemeanor animal cruelty. She faces up to one year in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.

    “Animals do depend on us for their care and nobody has to own a pet. But if you do own a pet, you should recognize the responsibility and there are laws that involve that responsibility,” Pentangelo said.”

    This depicts a Tibetan system with dealing with corpses. After prayers have been done by the Monks, the cemetery workers will slice up the body of the dead, mix it with barley flour and with prayers scatter it to the vultures. It is the last act of giving for the person who has eaten flesh themselves their whole lives.

    It reminds us that our bodies are borrowed and VERY TEMPORARY. It is not a good idea to attach so much to our bodies, but more to our minds. Our minds will leave the bodies and whether we bury, cremate or feed it to animals, we will have to leave it. We have left our bodies so many times in our previous lives and we have no memory of it and neither does anyone else. Some people might find it disrespectful to feed the bodies to the animals, but our bodies will be eaten by insects/maggots anyways when buried. What we do with the dead doesn’t so much affect the dead. It is more for the living. But then the living quickly becomes the dead anyways and then everything is forgotten.

    So what is important, is to take care of the mind. Start now. Whenever you feel like quitting, remember your mortality and all the karmas you have accumulated. Nothing is harder than to control one’s negativities and fears, but death doesn’t stop anything, it is just carried over into future lives. So deal with yourselves now and overcome now. THERE’S NO ESCAPE FROM THE SELF.

    The Yong He Gong Lama Temple, also known as the ‘Palace of Peace and Harmony Lama Temple’, is a temple and monastery of the Gelug (Yellow Hat) School of Tibetan Buddhism. It is located in the North-Eastern central part of Beijing.

    Yong He Gong was built in the 33rd year during the reign of Emperor Kang Xi (1694). It was built as the residence for his 4th son, Prince Yong Zheng. In 1722, Prince Yong Zheng ascended to the throne and moved to the Forbidden City. However, he still had great affection towards the mansion as he had been living there for 30 years. In his third year of reign, Emperor Yong Zheng upgraded it and named the mansion to Yong He Gong.

    In 1735, Emperor Yong Zheng passed away and his body was temporarily kept there. After his passing, Emperor Qian Long ascended to the throne. In his 9th year of reign he followed his mother’s instructions, took into consideration his father’s belief in Buddhism and he rebuilt the major halls into Buddhist ones, transforming it into a Tibetan Buddhist temple!

    In the Falun Hall, also known as the Great Hall of Scriptures, sits a grand 6 metre statue of the founder of the Gelugpa school, Lama Tsongkhapa. Below is an article on the restoration of Lama Tsongkhapa in the heart of Beijing, China. Take a look at how they restore the gold painting on the beautiful Lama Tsongkhapa. Very nice restoration of something culturally very important to the Chinese nation.

    Pemako is located in southeast Tibet. In Tibetan, the word “Pemako” means “Lotus Array” or “Lotus of Great Bliss”. It is a land that intrigues many Western explorers as it is thought to be the sacred land of nectar and bliss as described in Buddhist scriptures.

    Pemako is thought to be one of the 16 earthly paradises, a promised land where humanity will survive in the event of worldwide famine or calamities. It was also referred to by Guru Rinpoche as the “supreme hidden land”. Guru Rinpoche had concealed 108 “beyuls” or “hidden valleys” in the Himalayas to be revealed at specific times during the degenerate age. Shambala is the greatest hidden valley, Pemako is another one of them. The Buddhist texts describe these hidden valleys as being reminiscent of paradise. They can only be reached with enormous hardship, and those who force their way through may encounter failure or even, death.

    The landscape and geography of Pemako is shaped like that of Vajrayogini’s sacred body in a sleeping posture form.

    Her head is Kangri Kangpo (White Snow Mountain)
    Her two bosoms are Namche Barwa and Gyala Peri (both mountains)
    The lower part of her body lies in Yang Sang (upper Siang region of Arunachal Pradesh)
    Her sacred triangle is at the confluence of Siang and Yang Sang (rivers)
    Her sacred vulva is at Kila Yangzom
    Her navel is a small Nyingmapa monastery called Rinchenpung

    This is such a heart-warming story, to go the extra mile for an animal that cannot even say thank you. As a good human being, we have to be kind and generous to not just our kind but to animals as well. We should be even kinder to animals because they are the weaker ones.

    Human beings take away their habitats but all they can do is to try to find another place to live in. They have no one to complain to, there is no justice for them. The least we can do is not to harm them and help them whenever we can.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
