I've grown up with the mindset of never purchasing or supporting clothing that uses fur from animals that are solely bread for the purpose of fashion. Colorful furs are a big trend for Fall 2009, but you won't see me partaking in that because of my personal convictions and because I don't have a boat load of money to drop. Why doesn't everyone just do faux fur?
You may be thinking to yourself, "But what about leather, Alex?" Leather goods aren't a problem with me because the animal wasn't bread for just clothing. People also use cows for meat to nourish people and for other things.
What are your thoughts on fur and leather? Do you have a hard time justifying your purchase sometimes?
