I am interested in how this ends up. Should businesses that have to close down or change what they do when government makes new rules be able to get some kind of compensation or have rights to take legal action.

and do you know where they sell it to, is there a market for for and a lot of people buying it in Lithuania or is it all exported somewhere?
This is good news. Add to this the fact that Canada Goose has now made a decision to stop using real fur by 2022, I guess we are making real progress now (albeit, slowly)
