It’s been a big year so far in Australia for fashion embracing compassion.
Victoria-based fashion brand Husk has become the latest among a slew of labels that have pledged to drop fur.
Following pressure from PETA, as well as relentless campaigning from the group Animal Active, Husk joins the likes of Sage Sydney, Jenny Kee, and even Vinnies WA in leaving cruelly obtained fur items off its shelves.
Just last week, the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival also announced it was banning fur from its entire 2016 event.
How to Help More Animals Used for Fur
Animals suffer for fur, whether they’re farmed or trapped. Killing methods on fur farms are often prolonged and extremely painful, and animals trapped in the wild can suffer for days before dying of shock, blood loss, dehydration, or attacks from predators.
Fur production also involves the use of toxic chemicals which pollute the environment.
It’s important that we keep speaking out and urging brands to choose kindness and stop selling items made from animal fur.
