Fashion designer and Planet Green contributor Cree McCree has found a source for pelts to use in her fashions that is arguably one of the most sustainable - nutria, a large invasive rodent. The animals are killed by hunters and trappers to keep the populations down. Cree McCree feels her fashions are eco-friendly because they utilize the pelts of animals that destroy riparian habitat, and it utilizes pelts that otherwise are left to rot. It's one designer's push for guilt-free fur and habitat conservation. Check out her creations.
