Breaking News – President signs Truth in Fur Labeling Act

The Humane Society is reporting this morning that President Obama has signed the Truth in Fur Labeling Act. The bill was unanimously passed by the Senate earlier this month.

The new law will require accurate labels on fur garments – with information such as the species of animal and country. As important, the law will hopefully the stop the practice of labeling products as faux fur, when it actually contains fur from animals such as dogs, cats, wolves or raccoon dogs.

Of course, no one needs to wear fur garments at all. There are so many alternatives. I’ll try to get more news about this story later.
