Don’t Give UGG a Platform: Brands to Buy Instead

There’s nothing fashionable about cruelty to animals. UGGs are made with sheepskin and wool, and it’s no secret that sheep are exploited and killed for that trendy pair of boots. 

Here’s why you should ditch UGGs—along with a list of some great vegan dupes that are even cuter, if you ask us!

In the wool industry, before sheep are barbarically slaughtered for their skin or flesh, they’re often forced to live miserably in cramped spaces. Holes are punched in lambs’ ears, their tails are chopped off, and the males are castrated—all without painkillers. UGGs are a product of cruelty and suffering. 

Check out these animal-free alternatives to UGGs:
