What’s better faux fur or real fur?
The place of fur in the fashion industry is once again being questioned. The ethical issues associated with the fur trade are well documented which has led many brands to go fur-free, such as Gucci and Burberry.
Stella McCartney said “it’s about time that the fashion industry woke up to the fact that fur is cruel, barbaric and simply incredibly old-fashioned”. This has led to a huge rise in faux fur but is this really a good alternative?
In an interview with The Independent, former UK Shadow Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Mary Creagh said “they’re not telling us about the carbon consequences of extracting the material for fur alternatives”
And real fur well…
Banning real fur would impact the lives of thousands of farmers globally who rely on the trade as their sole income.
Many companies are now being created to monitor fur farms and ensure animals aren’t living in unfit conditions. But this doesn’t stop the fact that animals are still being caged for their entire lives in the name of fashion.
So guys what do you think the solution is? Let us know below.
