Today the Ecologist published this article about the sustainability of fur.
-Global sales have never been better
-Fake fur uses up to one gallon of petroleum – a non-renewable resource – to produce three synthetic jackets
-The Environmental Impact of Mink Fur Farming report indicates that the fur farming process has a higher impact on 17 of the 18 environmental themes, including climate change, eutrophication and toxic emissions as compared to cotton, acrylic, polyester (used for imitation fur) and wool.
How about this as an alternative?
