An ongoing discussion, which has lately created many headlines when it comes to the sustainability news discussions I follow; is fur sustainable or not? I don’t think many can argue that it is not a durable material, but is it necessary? Most of us don’t leave in cold Russia or Siberia. Most fur wearers love the material for it’s look and feel, and not necessarily for it’s function. Is that really enough to justify killing millions of animals each year? I can understand the use of leather, because it is a bi-product but, to me, fur just seems so wasteful. What do you think?
