  Sir Phillip Green has announced that he will join the wave of global clothing  retailers who are making a stand to put an overdue stop to the mistreatment of animals in the pursuit of profit. Green’s Arcadia group have reacted to recent reports issued by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)  revealing the horrific way that Angora rabbits are being treated at  massive and inhuman breeding farms, particularly in China. After  studying the PETA report Sir Phillip immediately issued a statement in which he confirmed that the  Arcadia Group have implemented an immediate  ban on selling any items of clothing or indeed any product that contains Angora wool. The Arcadia Group, the UK’s largest  clothing chain, operating retail outlets under the labels of BHS,  Miss Selfridge,  Dorothy Perkins, Topshop  and Wallis have added their name  to the list of clothing  retailers such as ASOS, John Lewis and Marks & Spencer who will no longer sell clothing made from angora wool. The UK public has displayed their unequivocal support for the embargo of Angora based clothing, after a recent documentary, sponsored by PETA, appeared on television, containing graphic shots of how these beautiful animals were  being callously treated, in particular how the breeding farm  workers were ordered to pluck the wool  from the rabbit’s skin rather than using conventional shearing methods. This method, while producing longer fibers, pays no  regard for the suffering that the animal is being put through.   Sir Phillip Green is recognized as being the UK’s largest fashion retailer with his Topshop brand now represented  in many of the world’s leading cities. ranging from São Paulo in Brazil, Johannesburg in South Africa, Sydney in Australia, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Las Vegas in the United States Topshop also operates more than  40 stores throughout Asia, mostly situated in the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. –
