BAN ON FUR TRADE
April 20, 2006
It is estimated that over two million cats and dogs are raised under appalling conditions in Asia and then cruelly slaughtered for their furs and skins to supply the EU market.
These products then enter Europe unlabelled or with false labeling and consumers, as well as small merchants are often duped into believing they are buying or selling faux fur.
This is why the introduction of strict labeling would have little or no effect as it is unlikely to represent a strong enough deterrent for the traders and manufacturers of these items.
Moreover, these items have also been proved to be toxic as they often contain chromium due to the tanning process. We need a worldwide ban on the fur trade! to help sign the petition now!
We, the undersigned, urge Tony Blair to help put an EU ban on the fur trade.
