How can I reuse or recycle a fur coat?
We’ve had an email from “the Cleworths”, asking a rather interesting question:
A family member died and we are left with a fur coat that charity shops won’t take and neither will any period clothing outlets.
Any advice as how to pass this on other than taking to dump?
I can see why charity shops won’t take them – even though it’s second hand, it’d still be promoting the idea of fur as clothing – but does that mean the coat should just be dumped?
Is there anything that can be done with it that won’t promote the future use of fur – but stops this fur being wasted?

UPDATE: I’ve just deleted about 40 comments of people trying to buy or sell fur coats. I don’t like censoring discussion but this isn’t the place for it or for organising buying/selling stuff and it’s clogging up the comments list. Any future comments of this nature will be deleted too.
