Every day I take my bike to school, and every day I pass by Stureplan, where I every day have to stop at the red traffic light. Yesterday at this very traffic light I saw a lady in a long mink fur coat, which got me thinking.
I know that fur coats and leather jackets are banned by the animal rights activists, but what if you consider this from an environmental perspective? If mankind will continue to eat meat, which I am sure a lot of people will, and if you know that the fur or leather is made from 100% meat-bi-products, wouldn't it be more environmentally sustainable to wear leather jackets and fur coats rather than Gore-Tex jackets? I assume that the market value of mink meat is not that great, which would have to disqualify the lady’s mink fur coat from this particular discussion.
What do you think, is it time to re-evaluate the fur coats?
