Hawaii Set to Ban Fur

Fur Free Society, Inc. would like to congratulate the State of Hawaii for introducing “A Bill For An Act Relating to Animal Fur Products” (S.B. No. 1350) to “prohibit the manufacture or sale of certain animal fur products in the State [of Hawaii] and the shipment or transport of certain fur products into the State for sale or distribution.” They would also like to thank Senator Gabbard for his leadership on this important bill.

In a statement to Fur Free Society, Inc. on January 24, 2019, Senator Gabbard said that “[b]anning animal fur products in our islands is the right thing to do and will show our aloha for animals. I’m hopeful we’ll get this bill to the finish line this session.”

Fur-bearing animals suffer terribly on fur farms and in traps. In recent years, more and more designers, including Versace, Chanel, Coach, and Burberry, have pledged to stop using fur, and countries, including Belgium, Luxembourg, and others have banned fur farming, with many more countries introducing bills to ban fur farming.
