The City Council of San Francisco approved a ban on the sale of new products made of natural fur. Starting January 1, 2019, the sale of new clothing and even accessories with fur will face a fine of $500 for each piece of clothing.
The ban will affect online sales, too, with deliveries to addresses in San Francisco. Those shops that made purchases before the prohibition entered will be able to sell their goods before January 1, 2020.
"Sale of fur products in San Francisco is incompatible with the idea of treating all living beings, people, and animals with kindness," the resolution says.
Animal rights advocates rightfully call this "historic event" and hopefully one that gets adopted by others.
