Protecting Endangered Species

Among Etsy’s core values is our commitment to acting as a mindful, transparent, and humane business, and planning and building for the long term. For this reason, it is important for our company and our community to minimize our impact on the depletion of scarce natural resources. Those resources include threatened and endangered animals. As part of our commitment to minimizing our impact on these resources, we have banned certain animal products from our marketplace, including items derived from or created using any animal species designated as threatened or endangered by the US Endangered Species Act.
