West Hollywood moved a step closer to being fur-free Tuesday when the City Council tentatively approved an ordinance that would ban the sale of apparel made in whole or part from the pelt or skin of an animal with hair, wool or fur.
The crowd gave a standing ovation to the council after the vote.
The ordinance needs a second reading before it can receive final approval. The council also would have to decide on a start date for the ban and whether it should apply to sales of used clothing. D’Amico proposed next June 30 as a start date.
Genevieve Morrill, president of the business group, told the council that such actions by the city “are not doing anything to help animals; they are hurting stores in your community.”
