    Okay so I just wanted to make this known. I have loved ugg boots ever since they first came out but I had never known how cruel it was to not buy anymore. Since I love how they look I decided to contact a representative to see if they had any faux fur ones. This was my experience..
    Jeremy:
    Hello Madeleine, how may I help you today?
    Madeleine:
    hi i was wondering if you had any faux fur uggs
    Jeremy:
    Give me one moment to double check for you.
    Madeleine:
    okay thank you
    Jeremy:
    You’re welcome Madeleine, I apologize, but unfortunately, all of our products are made with natural sheepskin. At this time we do not offer faux fur products.
    Madeleine:
    okay how is it that your animals are being treated though.
    Jeremy:
    Well all of our materials come from the meat industry, so we do not have a hand in how the animals are raised.
    Jeremy:
    Seeing that they are being raised as a food source, and we don’t permit unethical treatment, it is safe to say that we would not purchase materials from anyone we knew were mistreating their animals.
    Jeremy:
    Are you still there Madeleine?
    Jeremy:

    Jeremy:

    @Caduceuse Animals are definitely being killed for these boots. :( In the Australian wool industry, lambs are forced to endure a gruesome process called “mulesing,” in which huge chunks of skin and flesh are cut from the animals’ backsides, often without any painkillers. Once their bodies are worn out and they stop producing as much wool, they’re shipped to overseas slaughterhouses, where their throats are slit while they’re still conscious. Check out this video for more info:

    @Caduceuse listen, you shouldn’t be on this website if you approve of actions that harm animals. This is for vegan activists and if you believe that uggs are okay then you need to leave this website…

    There are so many UGG products that I am sure they kill sheep just for the products. I don’t get how people just come up with one simple fact to make it sound more humane because the sheep are killed for food, therefore their skin is up for grabs.. this world is cruel and it’s not humane what they do. No kind of fur is humane unless it’s fake. Period point blank. If you want to save more animals lives you would wear faux fur.
