In a previous post titled, MINK EYELASH EXTENSIONS: Drop dead gorgeous?
I wrote about a recent trend of people wearing Mink eyelash extensions i.e. eyelash extensions made from real Mink hair.
This is what a consumer of Mink eyelashes had to say, ‘I finally purchased Real Fur Mink Lashes and am thrilled to start using them. They are the most luxurious on the market. Very lightweight and sultry… OOOWeeee lol! (sic)’.
Consumers such as this clearly do not know the cruelty that goes into making Mink eyelash extensions.
In my post I stated:
IT IS FALSELY BELIEVED THAT MINK EYELASHES ARE CRUELTY FREE AND COLLECTED FROM BRUSHING LIVE MINKS.
This following extremely powerful anti-fur advertisement was produced by the International Anti-Fur Coalition (IAFC), 2014.
I feel deeply honoured that I was quoted, as below, in that advertisement.
The International Anti-Fur Coalition is a worldwide group of organisations. Since 2006 it has been working to end the atrocities of the fur industry.
Its voice is most heard through Worldwide Fur Free Friday (WFFF)~ one of the biggest international days of action in the history of animal rights organisations. On a designated day, animal rights organisations, worldwide, gather to educate the public about the cruelty inherent in the fur trade. Together these groups campaign for the “dissolution of the despicable fur trade” (Jane Halevy – International Anti-Fur Coalition).
Thank you International Anti-Fur Coalition for everything that you do for the innocent creatures murdered in the name of fur fashion!
