Etsy Will No Longer Sell Products Made From Endangered Animals!

Filed under: Retail TherapyEndangeredFur

etsy will stop allowing sale of animal products

If you're looking to buy a brand new fur coat on Etsy, then you're out of luck!

For a long time, the popular online marketplace has been the perfect place for people to buy and sell homemade goods.

But the website recently announced they would no longer allow the sale of products made from endangered or threatened species of animals!

That means any product containing fur, ivory, teeth, or bones of any animal protected by the US Endangered Species Act is strictly prohibited! The site will also ban the sale of anything made from threatened animals, like gorillas, bears, and jaguars!

We DEFINITELY think this is a good move if it discourages people from hunting endangered species for a profit, but it will be interesting to see how it affects the site overall.

And don't worry, guys. You can still buy all of the Cabbage Patch Kids wigs you want! LOLz!

But that's besides the point.

He's a total eco warrior!

We just know if he wasn't off making our favorite movies, he'd be in Africa, riding rhinos, chasing off poachers.

But because he can't hang out in Africa all the time, he helped launch the World Wildlife Fund's new campaign "Hands Off My Parts."

Sad…ivory trading has been illegal since 1989, but nothing is stopping it!!

In fact…it's growing…maybe even booming business.

Studies have shown that as the demand for ivory increases in China and more and more organized crime syndicate join the trade, the ivory industry will continue to skyrocket.
