Save our wetlands, wear more nutria
You heard me.
That is the tagline for a group promoting the use of nutria products after exterminating the environmentally damaging herbivore rats from Louisiana's waterways.
Use the meat, the fur and even the teeth, says the Righteous Fur spokesperson. Why? It is environmentally responsible and "green" to use everything possible from the nutria carcass.
"The jewelry teeth are available in their original orange, or soaked to attain a tortoise-shell look. They're capped in silver and made into necklaces and earrings."
Because nothing says "I love you" like nutria teeth, right?
