A firm that operates regular markets across the Warwick district has pledged to make its events free from fur. CJ’s Events Warwickshire


has signed up to Respect for Animals’ Fur Free Market scheme, to ban the sale of real fur at all of its future markets and events. The company works in


partnership with Warwick District Council to deliver their weekly retail markets (as well as monthly farmers markets) across the district. This move will reassure consumers who visit their markets that any items on sale should not be made from real fur and that they are not at risk of inadvertently supporting the fur industry. The selling of real fur at markets, especially Christmas markets, has become a major issue in recent years, with many customers unaware that they are buying real fur, which opponents claim comes from animals which are raised and killed in appalling conditions. Respect for Animals has documented numerous cases where, for example, hats with real fur bobbles and hats with fake fur bobbles are being sold at the same market, unlabelled, for the same price. Real fur can now be imported very cheaply from countries such as China, where there is virtually no enforced animal welfare legislation, and last winter Respect for Animals received numerous complaints from members of the public about the selling of real fur at their local winter markets. To counter this, the Fur Free

Markets scheme has been developed. All councils in the country have been contacted about their fur policy and given a star rating on an online database. Councils and private market


operators who join the Fur Free Markets programme receive a 5 Star rating. Markets that are officially designated Fur Free Markets have the gold standard of assurance for consumers concerned about accidentally buying real fur. The scheme is free to market operators and offers


exclusive use of branding and assistance with testing of suspected fur items. Jamie Walker, Company


Director said: “CJ’s Events Warwickshire is currently reviewing its policies. We’re pleased to have been approached by Respect For Animals to join the Fur Free Markets Scheme. “We realise real fur is cruel


and unnecessary. Although we encourage small independent businesses to sell exclusive products, we do not feel fur has a place at our markets or


events and will work closely with traders to ensure no fur products are sold.” Mark Glover, Campaign Director at Respect for Ani- mals, said: “We have become increasingly alarmed about real fur items being sold at markets around the country. “Much of this fur is not labelled as real fur and many consumers are horrified that they risk buying items in the belief they are buying fake fur. “It’s not good enough


to just expect consumers to be vigilant on their own,


so we are working with highly professional market operators, such as CJ’s Events Warwickshire, to reassure shoppers and stop the barbaric fur industry from creeping into fashion. “Our campaign for ‘Fur


Free Markets’ is creating a lot of interest amongst market operators and we expect more high-profile participants in time for this year’s Christmas market season. “We are confident it will help


end this part of the cruel and unnecessary fur trade.”
