The California State Senate passed a Humane Society of the United States-sponsored bill on August 11 that would require labeling on all fur garments indicating what kind of animal fur was used in its production. The bill still awaits the approval of Governor Schwarzenegger. The bill is intended to help consumers make ethical choices about the fur products they buy, as more and more consumers are finding objection to the use of animal fur for garments. If a garment is not marked, people might be under the assumption that the fur is fake, and unknowingly support an industry they oppose.
