Wearing animals furs and skin

Everyone want to look good, want to adapt to whatever is in fashion, may it be clothes, food, hairstyle, way of walking, way of talking or what not. And people easily get attracted towards anything which is in trend, everyone want to try it, without thinking what is wrong or right. Most loved thing in this fashion list is the items made from animals, especially the clothes we wear in winters which make us feel so warm, and we admire ourselves when we wear them. The wool which is used to make sweaters or the fur clothing we prefer than other types, all of this involve cruelty to animals, torture on them and sometimes this lead to the death of these animals. You may not realize the bad you are doing to nature while feeling happy for compliments you receive for going along with trend but the truth is we are behaving like criminals. Did you ever realize that billions of animals suffer and die every year, and also the production of wool, fur and leather contributes to climate change, land devastation, pollution and water contamination. All of this is doing severe destruction to mother earth.


Every year billion of animals suffer and die for clothing and accessories which people use in day-to-day life. Skin is torn from them to make leather and that leather is being used to make the leather items such as purse, leather belts, leather boots, leather jackets which we admire so much. Birds are held down while handful of feathers are ripped out of their sensitive skin, and small animals are caged for life before being killed for their fur and that fur can be seen on the clothes such as sweater, jacket we wear in winters. Sheep are often beaten and multilated by workers who steal their wool and their skin for shearing. Goats are similarly abused for cashmere and mohair. All of this is done in the name of fashion. Ask yourself a question is this fashion thing doing justice with nature. Answer is big no. Have you ever thought of the pain the animals experience while they undergo the process of producing things for us? Even a small scratch on your skin is so painful, so just think about the pain they feel.


The animals who are killed for their skin, fur, wool or feathers endure all the horrors of factory farming. These are being forced to live in cramped, filthy conditions, and are not given adequate amount of food, and every bit of freedom and autonomy is taken away from them. Animals have to suffer at the hands of workers, who humiliate them, beat and kick them, torture them. After living a long miserable life, they are violently butchered via the cheapest means possible, including bludgeoning, anal electrocution, and gassing. Some are even dismembered and skinned alive. The animals which are used for their fur can suffer for days from blood loss, shock, dehydration, frostbite, and gangrene. These animals never want to die for clothing and accessories but they are made to.


It is important for all of us to find an alternative to support our fashion sense in a way it does not harm animals and environment. We are no one to snatch right and freedom of animals. We are no one to kill other living organisms for our pleasure and satisfaction. We should make our family, friends aware about it and should tell them to not to use accessories made from animals. We should now stop separating animals from their family, friends and nature around them. We should stop purchasing these items and also make people around us understand that this is the worst thing we are doing.

Humans stop controlling things around; otherwise nothing would be left other than your greed.
