The bubble jackets from Canada Goose have been very popular for a number of years. Part of the reason for this is the characteristic fur collar on the hood.

The company has also received an enormous amount of criticism from, animal welfare organizations, for using fur from coyotes but now the company has promised that they will stop using fur in their products.

Canada Goose has told Sky News that they plan to stop buying fur by the end of 2021, and they will have produced their last jacket with fur by 2022.

One of the organizations that has criticized the company is the animal protection organization PETA. They consider this a victory.

After years of big protests, hard-hitting revelations, celebrity actions and lawsuits, the company has finally given up and will stop using fur. Thus, they save sensitive and intelligent prairie wolves from being caught and killed in barbaric steel traps.

The company itself denies that it was under pressure from the animal welfare organization. According to CNN, the reason for the change is that Canada Goose wants to be more sustainable.

CNN also said that the company earlier this year launched its “most sustainable” jacket to date, which is produced with 30% lower CO₂ emissions which requires 65% less water to produce. The jackets for Canada Goose will still have goose fur in the lining, something that animal rights activists have also criticized.

Immediately after the news that the fur was going away, the company rose over 2% on the stock exchange, according to CNN.

A number of other companies have also stopped using fur in recent years.
