There is a new fur free initiative being put forward by Fur Free Seattle! Help put an end to the sale of fur in Seattle by signing the online petition here.
If we are going to abolish fur we need to use every tactic we have – education , agitation & legislation.
The fur industry has been under scrutiny lately, facing an overwhelming amount of negative attention from the fashion industry, animal advocates, and even the general public.. With every campaign victory that the coalition to abolish the fur trade has accomplished, it becomes harder and harder to find new designers willing to sell this archaic product. With fewer brands willing to stock fur based items on their racks, it opens the door for more local legislation to be passed without push back from an industry invested in fur.
Don’t take our word for it, even industry insiders are recognizing this reality:
“Fur is under attack like never before. Hardly a week goes by without news of some brand dropping fur, or a jurisdiction proposing to ban its production or sale. This tsunami of negativity fuels a self-reinforcing cycle: As major retailers (Saks, Neimans, Holt Renfrew) stop selling fur, successful brands (Canada Goose, Moose Knuckles, Mackage) have less incentive to stand up to relentless activist pressure – and, with less business at stake, it becomes harder for politicians to resist activist pressure for production or sales bans. Worse, the barrage of negative news can create the false but potentially self-fulfilling impression that “society” has decided it is no longer ethically acceptable to wear fur.” – Truth about Fur
Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade USA (CAFT USA) has made our objective crystal clear – eradicating the fur trade once and for all. We believe that in order to do this we need to embrace every tool we have. We must educate, agitate & legislate.
Support the Seattle Fur Ban Today by signing the petition, following them on social media platforms and spreading the word to your friends and family.
