Fur is the oldest garment of mankind and today still lives "primitive peoples" respectfully with and from the native animals by using their meat as food source, oils and fats for healing and cosmetic care and finally the fur is used as heat source or is also managed by its sale.
Through the worldwide urbanization and gentrification these 'primitive peoples' are more and more displaced geographically, morally and politico-industrially.
"For the good of the whole" is the term used when arguments are made for the great cause and the principle of distribution is to serve social justice. This is the case with many parts of the life-sustaining industries formed by gas, oil, food and textiles. Everyone is to be given the conditions for participation, so it is suggested and produced.
The western 'saturated' world is increasingly riding bicycles and wearing clothes, made in Asia and the new 'hungry' big world of the East is driving big cars, made in Europe...
The world is growing and so our responsibility for it is growing and who wants to return to the world of primitive people !
Large-scale and expensive anti-campaigns are being exploited to the fullest in the media and even after conversions and changes of heart of one's own points of view, these are silently concealed and kept silent for fear of losing one's own status.
The fur-processing industry scoops less than 1% of its raw skins compared to the food industry worldwide. This does not include the unused, unprocessed skins from wild stocks. In Germany alone, most of the animals killed from hunting are destroyed with the bellows. In 2018/19, 422,209 red foxes were shot, 3% of which were used as fur and 97% were destroyed with bellows. In the same year, only 30% of the killed martens, 3% raccoon fur was used as fur. The rest must be destroyed from low demand. ( Source: DJV Handbuch Jagd2020 )
A fur made of red fox, raccoon or marten is very durable, can be reprocessed at any time, makes ecological sense and is therefore sustainable.
Why are our natural resources, as they are still used by our primitive peoples today, disregarded and their "classic" processing morally fought against ! At the same time, great efforts are being made against climate change and to reduce plastic and CO2, while natural resources are being thrown away and fur farms are being fought to give up..(?)
