From Four Paws

Fur is not only animal cruelty but can also be dangerous for humans: A study commissioned by FOUR PAWS reveals that fur fashion is contaminated with poisonous chemicals.

Is fur a “natural“ product?

The cruel keeping conditions for fur-bearing animals are ignored by the fur industry, or described as appropriate. Fur from animals is often advertised as a particularly “ecological and valuable product”. FOUR PAWS has investigated a range of fur products and determined that these claims are not truthful.

Children’s clothing particularly poisonous

FOUR PAWS and EcoAid had a number of different fur products such as collars and scarves checked for poisonous traces by an independent specialist laboratory. The detailed “Poison Report” shows the alarming results: a majority of the mink, fox and raccoon dog furs are contaminated with dangerous chemicals such as formaldehyde, NPE, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) or chlorinated paraffins. Legal restrictions and industrial standards are frequently exceeded. Children’s clothing turned out to be particularly poisonous.

fur is natural
on who it was born
not by the vain
and frivolous,
worn
keep it on the back
of the animals
from which it came
fur is not status
it is a sad, crying
game

    I wear my own skin and my own fur, I’m hairy enough. It’s cruel and insane to wear a dead body. Furs bring bad luck: their first owners (legitimate owners) have been killed in those furs, for those furs. I wish fur lovers to be kept in cages, electrocuted and skinned. It’s so fashionable…
