California recently became the first US state to ban the sale of animal fur products. Governor Gavin Newsom signed a legislation that will make it illegal to sell, donate or manufacture new fur products, including apparel, handbags and shoes, in the state. Those who violate the law would attract civil penalties. The law goes into effect on January 1, 2023.

This will offer retailers time to sell off their inventories. The bill was authored by Laura Friedman.

Used fur and taxidermy products, leather, cowhide and shearling are exempt from the ban. Fur products used for religious purposes or by native American tribes are exempt as well. Fur lawfully taken with a hunting license is allowed.

The ban also won’t apply to faux fur, generally made from plastics.
