Victory! Israel Becomes The First Country In The World To Ban The Sale Of Fur

Israel has officially become the first country in the world to ban the sale of fur after signing an amendment today. The ban will go into effect in six months.

In October of last year, WAN reported that Israel’s Environmental Protection Minister, Gila Gamliel, shared an update on social media that stated:

“This morning, an important move I initiated is on its way to being implemented; the ban on the fur trade in Israel. There is no need and no justification for the use of fur in the garment industry,” Minister Gamliel shared on her Facebook page at the time. “I call on all countries to join us, and together, we will show benevolence and act kindly towards animals.”

According to the Humane Society, every year, an estimated one hundred million animals are killed on intensive fur farms to supply fur to the fashion industry. Meanwhile, millions more are trapped and killed for their fur in the wild, mainly in the U.S., Canada, and Russia.

Let’s urge more countries to ‘Make Compassion The Fashion!’

You can help all animals and our planet by choosing compassion on your plate and in your glass. #GoVeg
