Fur is warm and beautiful, but did you know that it is also eco-logical?
Farmed minks and foxes are carnivores; they are fed offal and other by-products from fish and meat processing facilities, making productive use of nutrients that might otherwise end up clogging landfills. The fur these animals provide is long-lasting, recyclable and, ultimately, biodegradable.
The fat is rendered to produce mink oil, which is used to preserve and protect leathers and as a high-quality lubricant. Even the soiled bedding (straw, shavings) manure, and carcasses are valuable; they are composted to produce organic fertilizers and bio-fuels.
Nothing is wasted!
