Fur farms belong in the past.

The vast majority of animals killed for fur are raised on farms and kept in deplorable conditions. From fox and mink to racoons, undomesticated are forced to live in cramped, wire-bottom cages, deprived of the ability to engage in natural behaviors. Animals are killed in inhumane ways, such as anal electrocution or gassing.

Fur production also has many costly environmental impacts, such as high energy consumption, pollution and animal emissions. On fur factory farms, waste runoff pollutes soil and waterways.

Be an educated consumer; don’t buy new fur in coats, gloves, and hats. Opt for thrifted pieces and inform your friends of the inhumanities of the fur farming industry.
