Every year, millions of rabbits, foxes, minks and other animals are killed, simply because they have beautiful fur. These animals already know they’re gorgeous, but they don’t want to sacrifice their lives for the sake of human fashion. Here’s what you can do to de-fur your life.
Clean out your closet. If you happen to own anything with fur, get rid of it! You don’t need to deck out in raccoon (check if your fur is real). However, if you need something furry in your wardrobe, go faux.
Take your business elsewhere. A lot of stores that sell real fur don’t deserve your business. Fortunately there are a ton of stores that feel the same way about fur, so shop smart and go there.
Branch out. Once you get into the swing of de-furring your life, tell your friends and family to do the same. Have conversations in person or social network your feelings to the world.
Petition time! Start a petition to stop the killing of animals for fashion. Get all of your signatures ready and send it away to a company that needs a reality check.
Send those letters, too. Many fashion magazines and advertisements deck their models out in fur. Don’t let them get away with this! Write letters to these editors and directors and tell them that they’re supporting cruelty.
Get the government involved. Ask your legislators to introduce bills to stop the trapping and excessive cruelty of animals.
