California New Law Bans The Sale and Manufacturing of Fur In The State
California remains to be a state protecting animals and the environment. However, this new law may affect many, especially celebrities that love showing off their wealth.
Starting January 1, California is banning the production and sale of animal fur, which means no sheepskin, fur coats, and more-at least new ones. The law was passed in 2019, and signed by over 600,000 PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) supporters in the state. The new law will protect dogs, cats, minks, and foxes, as animals are typically abused and tormented in order to produce fur.
The U.S. is one of the last countries to get ban fur. Europe and a dozen other countries have banned fur.
"The year 2023 marks a historic step forward for California with the implementation of a law that truly represents the values of our constituents," said Assemblymember Friedman.
"Californians do not want to see animals live and die in cruel ways for nothing more than fashion, and I'm so pleased that this law will help uphold our state's animal welfare standards as well as potentially help drive innovation for more sustainable fashion alternatives.
"We are grateful to California for taking a stand against the cruel fur industry by implementing this statewide ban on the production and sale of new fur products," said Jenny Berg, California state director for the Humane Society of the United States. "The fact that around 100 million animals are still raised and killed in fur factory farms for nothing more than a fur coat, hat or other product is archaic, especially when humane, environmentally sustainable alternatives exist. We applaud California for leading the fight against fur and sending a powerful message that animals should no longer suffer and die for fashion."
This bill could create a domino effect of states canceling fur because, according to PETA, "Fur is dead."
