Do you believe it is acceptable to ban fur and leather?

  • There are so many cruelty free alternatives that are much better anyway

    The Leather and fur industry cause so much damage to our world. Between the toxic chemicals they are treated with (for preservation since it IS skin that will rott if not treated with heavy chemicals) and the way they treat the animals it just does not make sense to keep using these products.

  • Wearing fur? Sounds quite unethical

    Morally bad and quite unnecessary from my point of view. Also barbaric. People who wear fur(especially women) actually wear it for their own desires. It is not something vital. I think there are more alternatives to fur. Isn't it true?
    But unfortunately some people think it's OK to sacrifice animals for the benefits of humankind. That's what we call selfishness.

  • Animal fur should not be used

    Every animal deserves to be free . Animals are like humans . They also have pain . Just that they cant talk like us we can kill them . We can wear jackets made from other materials . What if they killed you to wear you like their jacket . Do you want to bee skinned ? Maybe even alive ? So have some heart for them.

  • It's not worth it at all!!

    How would you feel if some animals killed you just to wear. We have other materials we can wear but some people are stupid enough to wear leather. Animals lives aren't worth leather! Animals have feelings and they do feel pain! We should all stop wearing leather and wear some different material clothes!!

  • We, as people would not want animals to wear us. So why let us as people kill them to do what we wouldn't want.

    People buy fur just so they can look "good" or make them seem rich. All it shows about the person if that they have no heart. If wearing another living being on their body does not seem wrong to them, then they are the problem. Don't wear animals just so you think you look good, because you don't and all it does is make you a cruel hearted person.

  • YES- it needs to be banned permanently!

    What is the purpose of making leather or fur?? There is NO purpose for it. We have coats, and jackets that can be made of all kinds of materials and to use the skin of an animal is evil and stupid. There is no reason to use any byproducts left of an animal, or to hurt an animal to make leather in any way. The stupidity of still creating leather or fur is absurd and it needs to be banned and removed from society completely. People can start by NOT buying it and then there will be no market and it will have to go out of business. But people aren't that willing, caring or aware.

  • We are in the 21st century, we are supposed to be advance yet we are still so backwards by wearing the remains of dead animals.

    In the past when technology was non-existent, utilizing as much of the remains of dead animals was necessary for survival. Fast forward to today with all the technology we have, it is beyond stupid to still be using animal byproducts, we have synthetic materials available to us yet we still choose to kill poor animals for our own stupidity. If you wear the remains of a dead animal then you are essentially a murderer and might as well be wearing the remains of another dead person since humans are just animals.

  • The natural way

    No, it is not acceptable to ban the making and selling of leather and fur. These things have been used from animals since humans were first started. There is nothing wrong with using animals for things, as long as you use all that you can and kill them in a humane manner.

  • Banning Fur and Leather Unacceptable

    Banning fur and leather is too much of an encroachment on our rights. While I am not at a fan of wearing fur and I appreciate that leather is also an animal product, the fact is if we ban it we open the door to further encroachment on our rights. For instance, maybe we should all have to be vegan. After all, raising animals for food has also raised some concerns, both environmental and about animal cruelty. And frankly, in some climates only animal skins will shield you from the harsh weather. So banning fur and leather is not acceptable.

  • Fur and leather should be allowed.

    It is not acceptable to ban fur and leather because animal goods have been worn by people for thousands of years. They are actually better for the environment than wearing artificially made materials such as pleather and polyester. While animal activists might not be happy with the wearing of fur and leather, people can not let them dictate what is and is not allowed.

  • No not really.

    We do not need to ban fur and leather but they should probably ban the act of hunting and killings animals just for the fur and leather. I feel like if you are going to kill an animal for food than you should use as much as it as possible to give meaning to its life.

  • I don't get why we should ban

    Animals have feelings? Yes, they do. Wow, then don't eat any meat, don't put them in cages, don't keep a pet. Have you ever thought about whether they want to be a pet? No, because you just think about yourself. Your dog may want freedom and hang out with their kind, but you keep them in ur house. And I believe plants are living things too, just because they don't show emotions or can't move around doesn't mean they want to be dead/eaten by you. So don't eat anything, eat plastics maybe? You guys are hilarious.
    Are synthetic materials more biodegradable than fur or leather? I doubt that. Are biodegradable materials more environmental friendly? I think so. Is leather /fur more long-lasting than synthetic materials? Yes.
    It's cruel/a total waste to kill an animal just for their fur/skin, but what if the meat is also consumed? That's acceptable. And I agree that the method of killing can be modified so that they are not skinned alive.

  • Humans evolved as a predatory species.

    Regardless of what you think, humans have been predatory for as long as they have been human. If someone wants to eat meat or use leather products, they can. I'm not saying I support using leather and fur in every situation, but the decision of whether or not to manufacture/buy products with these materials goes down to the individual. You can disapprove of it, try to boycott it, suggest other materials, and feel proud thinking you have somehow transcended the natural order, but put a large-scale ban on it? No!

  • Fur yes leather no!

    My family has been in the shoe industry for the last 70 years, we especially in comfort shoes for diabetics, and elder people. We have sold some synthetic shoes, but as today, synthetic can't equal soft leather, it just doesn't breathe or adjust to your feet as real leather. Overall we just couldn't sell any synthetic shoes for this purpose cause costumers return synthetic shoes almost all the time. So we still selling leather, until there's a synthetic product that can compete with leather, we will be selling leather shoes.
