To those who manage and respond to letters to the Fur is Green website, especially this Alan (sorry, I don't know your last name),

I would like to say that you all are an immense credit to the fur industry and anyone who wears fur. I personally don't own anything fur(not because I wouldn't love to have a wonderful fur jacket or coat) but I am in support of those who do wear it and responsible practices in the fur industry.

Canuck Mink Maiden here,

Here is a story I would like to share with you all:

A while back we heard about a young women who walking in a nature reserve with her two small children, when out of nowhere a cougar sprung out. The woman was brutally malled and killed. Later the cougar was located and euthanized by wildlife officers. Unfortunately, they also found that the cougar had two small cubs of her own. Meanwhile , a relief fund was set up by family and friends in the community for the dead woman's children. A while later, animal activists created a 'save the kittens' campaign. So: which campaign do you think raised more money?

FUR POEM

November 1, 2010

Surprise in my Inbox! We've received this poem, an ode to fur:

Mink is Gold
worn strong, worn bold,
wrapped around ones neck.

Finish fox in seven
is a slice of heaven,
a piece not to be missed



Tell me actually tell the world, do you watch as animals are beaten and skinned alive for their pelts..

Dear Fur IS Green,

I would just like to say thank you for making all this information available. How can someone comment or have such a strong view against fur when they do not know the facts. Three days ago I bought my first fur coat, second hand from an old lady. It is so beautiful. However, much to my horror, my sister's friend called me disgusting and almost spat on me - to which I replied how do you think your leather couch was manufactured? And those black leather boots you wear in the winter..... I proceeded to list all things animal. Her opinion on the matter was merely formed by something she had heard and not researched.

The fur industry conveniently neglects to mention that all of the animal skins used to make fur coats are tanned. Tanning is a procedure that stabilizes the collagen or protein fibers in animals skins specifically to stop them from biodegrading. Today's tanning processes use a variety of environmentally damaging substances, including mineral salts, formaldehyde, coal tar derivatives, and various oils, dyes, and finishes, some of them cyanide-based. In addition to the toxic substances mentioned above, tannery effluent also contains large amounts of other pollutants, such as protein, hair, salt, lime sludge, sulfides, and acids.

I agree fur is renewable

I think that it is ironic that the so-called environmentalists can’t figure out that furs are more eco-friendly than are plastic coats. Plus furs are warmer. When it’s cold, we use the fur to stay warm. Plus furs are biodegradable. Keep the furs flying.

Dear alan - you are stupid.

Hey, I'm not the one who writes insulting accusations and then can't back them up with a single fact or reasoned argument.

Uhm, are you freaking kidding me???? Seriously??? Is this a joke??? Hello??? anyone home???

Fur is not green. Green means, you know, living in harmony with the natural world around us and all that. So obviously that includes not killing animals to use them as clothing!!! Ok, maybe it's less polluting than wearing a plastic coat but that doesn't mean it's green!!!


Question

February 19, 2010

Is it true that people have actually been splattered with paint when wearing fur coats?? If so, could you kindly supply me with links to appropriate and bona-fide news stories regarding this issue.

Many thanks
Cath Hurwood


Dear Cath,
This is an excellent question. Some years ago when such stories or fears were being published in the media from time to time, the Fur Council of Canada surveyed fur cleaners in Canada and the USA to verify how many coats were being sent for cleaning. We found none, and no retailers reported any such attacks on their customers either. All we could conclude was that these urban myths may have originated with paint splattered old fur coats sometimes used in anti-fur street protests? Ironically, animal-rights groups have sometimes claimed that it is the fur industry that spreads these stories, to discredit protesters!

Sincerely,
Alan
