Los Angeles Bans Fur Sales in All Stores

The southern Californian city of Los Angeles has officially banned the sale of fur in its stores.

The city council voted collectively to prohibit the sale and manufacturing of products made partially, or wholly from real fur.

The prohibition applies to apparel, accessories, and footwear, however, it doesn’t include leather or lambskin.

Council member, Bob Blumenfield, released a statement regarding the significance of this ban:

“There’s no excuse for being complicit in this inhumane and unnecessary trade. With this vote, we are telling the world that Angelenos care about animal welfare…We will continue to be a leader in animal welfare efforts and must work with other cities and states until this vile practice is ended across our nation.”

Burberry and London Fashion Week are the latest names to join the fur-free movement.

As the largest city in the U.S, Los Angeles has set a precedent for other major cities to follow.
