Earlier this week, I wrote about the wool industry. Today, I’m sharing this fantastic 3-minute video that The Humane Society of the United States just released this week about the fur industry. I love the idea of using a kid’s stuffed animal to illustrate the key points — sparing us the haunting images of real animals exploited for their fur. So many more people will be open to watching and sharing.
Once you’ve watched the video, check out my previous post Fur-Free, Faux Fur, and “Faux” that includes some awesome alternatives (and a super-cute video clip of me with my then four year-old nephew). With so many fashionable options available now, saying NO to the fur industry is one of the easiest ways to go cruelty-free.
A special shout-out to my dear friend Michelle and her colleagues of the HSUS Fur-Free Campaign for doing such amazing work on behalf of the animals. I’m truly blessed to have such talented and compassionate friends inspiring me each day.
