Fur Free Policy
Today, 95 percent of fur is sourced from factories that harvest fur from animals. Animals such as raccoon dogs, foxes, bobcats, and minks, collect the best quality fur and hence become prey and suffer unimaginable cruelty. Our company is in the business of making quality bags and one of our main policies promotes animal protection. We advocate for fur free bags in a bid to fight against animal cruelty and put an end to the use of fur in fashion.
While some animals are bred for meat production, others are plucked alive, force fed, transported under insane conditions and treated very badly. These poor animals make excellent sources of fur, feathers, leather, and other animal products which are thought to make products in the fashion industry. Wild animals and a few domestic ones suffer immense brutality as a result of snares, conibear traps, steel jaw traps and other inhumane methods meant to catch or kill animals for their fur. AS a result, up to 5 million animals become victims and get caught in these traps each year.
Many people buy fur under the guise that they are buying a natural or organic product. This could not be further from the truth. Fur is treated using harmful chemicals that can cause health issues such as hormonal imbalance, cancer, and allergies. In fact, compared to polyester garments, fur garments have a carbon footprint ratio of 28 to one with fur garments bearing the highest risk. Fur factories are notorious for causing pollution owing to poor waste disposal and producing odor which can negatively affect our environment.
Hundreds of countries have come together to ban cruelty against animals. Some countries have banned snaring of animals and others have signed laws to end or limit farming of fur. In a survey conducted by 17 EU countries, 73 % of people here did not support fur farming.
