Support Mandatory Labeling of Fur on All Clothing Items in California

  • by: Care2.com
  • recipient: Governor Schwarzenegger

People are buying clothes with "faux" fur under the assumption that because it is unlabeled, it's not animal fur--but some "faux" fur is very real.

Tell Governor Schwarzenegger not to keep consumers in the dark--all fur needs to be labeled on clothing.

California's A.B. 1656 would correct a loophole that allows fur to go unlabeled on clothing if the value is under $150. Some fur being sold as "faux" is actually dog, rabbit, or other animal fur, usually from China, that lurks under the guise of unlabeled clothing, cheap costs, and bright dyes.

Consumers have a right to know what they are buying, and if their purchases support the cruel practices of the fur industry.

Don't let fur farms and fur manufacturers benefit from assumptions about unlabeled fur. Support A.B. 1656 and ensure that all fur is labeled on clothes sold in California--no matter what the value is.

Dear Governor Shwarzenegger,

California's A.B. 1656 would correct a loophole that allows fur to go unlabeled on clothing if the value is under $150. This fur is actually dog, rabbit, or other animal fur, usually from China, that lurks under the guise of unlabeled clothing, cheap costs, or bright dyes.

Consumers have a right to know what they are purchasing, and if their purchases support the cruel practices of the fur industry. I believe all fur should be labeled on clothing so that shoppers can make informed decisions about what they buy, and if their "faux" fur items are really faux.

Don't leave consumers in the dark, and don't let fur farms and fur manufacturers take advantage of consumers', salespeoples', and store owners' assumptions. I urge you to support A.B. 1656 and ensure that all fur is labeled on all clothes sold in California.
