Israel bans fur trade for fashion

Israel announced a ban on the sale of fur for fashion purposes and excluded from the decision research and some religious traditions, as fur is used in the manufacture of hats worn by ultra-Orthodox Jews.

The Minister of Environment, Gila Gamlil, said in a statement that “the fur industry causes the deaths of hundreds of millions of animals around the world, and causes untold cruelty and suffering. Signing these regulations will make the Israeli fashion market more environmentally friendly and animal-friendly.”

The ban is due to come into effect within six months.
