Faux fur and synthetic leather are produced from materials derived from the refining of crude oil.

Substituting natural products derived from the sustainable use of a natural resource, seals or other animals, certainly is neither a "green" decision nor an "eco-friendly" decision.

Those who make such suggestions are either woefully ignorant of the source of faux fur and synthetic leather or unconcerned about the depletion of the world's oil reserves: a non-renewable resource.

In addition, the factories for producing such materials are located in "cities" and not in the villages and towns that are home to sealers in Canada, USA, Greenland, Norway, Russia or Namibia.
