The beginning of summer isn't necessarily the most ideal time of the year to start thinking about the moral dimensions of wearing second-hand fur. However, I found this hat at a local charity store for 5 euros. Why would I never in a million years even consider buying a piece of new fur, but I feel that it is okay to buy it second-hand? Am I supporting the fur industry nevertheless? Despite the fact that it is illegal in Finland to advertise fur as an ecological choice, could it actually be more ecological to wear one life-lasting second-hand fur hat than to buy cheaply mass-manufactured, imported acrylic fake fur hats that only last for a season, even if the production of real fur is probably (at least according to Animalia) more energy-consuming?
