Bebe to drop animal fur

Bebe Stores Inc. (BEBE) will stop buying products with animal fur starting in January, CEO Gregory Scott announced Wednesday.

The San Francisco-based clothing retailer has been working with vendors for the past year to ensure that only fur created as a byproduct would be used in its products, Scott said.

“Over this same period, we are proud to say that we have dramatically reduced the use fo animal fur to less than 3 percent of our product offerings and now look forward to completely eliminating animal fur from our orders beginning in January 2008,” Scott said.

Bebe operates 285 stores in the United States, U.S territories and Canada, as well as an online store.
