Fur bans on the rise

In New York, London and California, the cruelty of fur is surfacing. In recent weeks we’ve been alerted to some outstanding moves, taken by those who wish to see an end to the horrors endured by animals.

In London, posh night club Mahiki has made the decision to go fur-free. After a one-night event, the club chose to continue on with their new dress code.

“I imagine some noses will be out of joint, but ultimately, everyone has a choice and the move will raise awareness of the fur trade,” anti-fur campaigner told Cosmopolitan Magazine.

In New York, patrons of ReVision, Back Room and Auction House will be denied entry if they’re wearing fur. The animal-loving owner of the clubs. Inhabit.com reported that the owner hopes “his small requirement will incite change and help make people to support only cruelty-free clothing.”

In September, 2013, West Hollywood made the move to ban the sale of fur, as well. The decision is being challenged, though their past humane-driven ideas have succeeded.

As the awareness of the inherent cruelty of fur raises, we believe we will see more and more fur bans like this.
