The new bans, and together with other recently in California, lawsuits against the for-profit prisons and detention camps for immigrants, centers, and small hotel shampoo bottles.

The new fur law that will take effect in the year 2023, has been praised by animal rights activists, despite ardent opposition from the billion-dollar U.S. fur industry and threats of a lawsuit, of the Fur Information Council of America

“California is a leader when it comes to animal welfare, and today, that the guide includes the ban on the sale of fur,” Newsom said in a statement. “But we do more than that. We make a statement to the world, the beautiful, wild animals such as bears and tigers have no place on a trapeze harness or jump through the flames.”

A spokesman for the Fur Information Council, said in a statement the new law is part of a “radical vegan agenda with fur as the first step other prohibitions on what we wear and eat.”

Couture designers such as Versace, Gucci and Giorgio Armani have stopped either, fur or pledged, in their collections and designers like Stella McCartney use no animal products in their designs.

“The signing of AB 44, underlines the point that the consumers of today want to suffer, just not wild animals, extreme pain and fear for the fashion,” Kitty Block, CEO and President of the Humane Society, said.

The prohibition includes uses, fur, fur used for religious or tribal purposes, as well as leather, dog and cat fur, cowhides, deer, sheep and goat leather, and taxidermy.
