Please join local activists to protest UGG’s on Fur Free Friday. Every year, millions of sheep are castrated and parts of their tails are cut off- often without any painkillers- before they are finally slaughtered and their skin is torn off to make UGG boots and other shearling products. Contrary to what many consumers think, “shearling” is not sheared wool; it is actually the sheep’s skin tanned with the wool still attached to it. For more information, please visit https://www.peta.org/living/personal-care-fashion/ugg-boots/
Here are the details:
Where: UGG Store, San Francisco, 221 Powell St, San Francisco, CA 94102
When: Friday, November 23rd from 2:00PM-5:00PM
