You might think that wearing boots, coats, and other products made from wool and sheepskin doesn’t hurt animals—but you’d be wrong.
Here’s the truth:
Sheep used for wool are castrated without painkillers, have their tails chopped off, and have their throats slit, just for a pair of UGG boots, a wool sweater, or a jacket. Lambs (babies!) used for wool are also subjected to a cruel process called “mulesing,” in which huge chunks of skin are cut from their booties with instruments resembling gardening shears.
Don’t want to support this deadly fashion trend? It’s easy: DON’T!
Here’s how you can help:
1. Grab these three items:
2. Draw a puffy cloud shape to represent wool on your piece of paper, cut it out, and write “Save Booty—Don’t Wear Wool! peta2.com/Booty.”
(Feel free to get creative!)
4. Wear it to school (on your booty—duh)!
Be sure to snap a pic of you wearing your “Save Booty” sign at school and submit it for 1,000 Street Team points!
