Boycotting kangaroo fur will change nothing
with a different animal to decorate the protest poster boards with. They will only succeed at having consumers convinced that avoiding the kangaroo boots means the leather ones are better. People will continue blindly supporting the use of fur from other animals, the wool, and the silks without any idea that those animals are just as deserving of freedom as kangaroos – because we can’t have single issue campaigns for each and every animal (only the majestic ones). Without the moral messaging that clearly conveys that veganism is the only way to end the unjust exploitation of animals , consumers will continue compartmentalizing which cruelty remains acceptable, and which taboo. Campaigns against fur don’t work , and until we use our time to promote vegan education, nothing will change.
