Los Angeles Takes Major Step In Banning Fur Sales

By Marissa Higgins

Whether or not you live a meat-free lifestyle, many consumers are turning away from fur in fashion. While many companies still sell clothing and accessories that use animal products or animal by-products, ranging from obvious fur coats to a more subtle cashmere scarf, the tide is slowing turning against fur. 

Some of this shift is happening on a more grassroots level. For example, smaller companies are coming up with alternatives for fur, down, and even leather. But changes are happening on the big scale, too.

For example, Los Angeles has just taken a major first step to ban fur sales in their city. As the LA Times reports, a proposal to ban the sale of fur products was presented, and ultimately advanced, at their City Council this past week. The council voted to direct the city attorney to draft an ordinance on the matter. This ordinance would stop the manufacture and sale of any new fur products. Eventually, this ordinance would be presented to the council for a final approval.
