ANIMALS AS FASHION

Respecting animals doesn't just mean not eating them! Learn here about some of the ethical issues surrounding using animals and their body parts for fashion.

  • Down: Birds used for down are live-plucked until they bleed...and then their torn flesh is sometimes sewn back together with no anaesthetic. Learn more!

  • Wool: Sheep used for wool are sent to slaughter early in their lifespan and investigations indicate that violent treatment during shearing is rampant and routine in the UK. Learn more!

  • Fur [under construction, but check out Viva! in the meantime]
