"URGENT: Tell boohoo to Stand by Its Decision to Ban Wool
Online fashion retailer boohoo group whose brands include boohoo, boohooMAN, PrettyLittleThing, and Nasty Gal decided to withdraw its ban on wool. Despite knowing how sheep are abused in the industry and that wool is one of the most environmentally damaging materials, the retailer made the unethical decision not to go ahead with the ban."

Just a few more Aussie jobs and livelihoods being rubbished by PETA.

PETA along with the RSPCA have saved me money
No longer even think of donating to both
The former is quite childish

Gee. It used to be 'silly as a sheep'; now it's silly as a PETA member.

All over the world, every day, thousands of
animals are abused.

Animal cruelty and animals lack of protection is
gaining attention across different avenues -
including food production, entertainment, tourism,
and now fashion.

How do we stop it? Or better still - can we stop it?
Money makes the world go round as they say.
I guess all we can do is consider animals in our decision
making when buying products. Hit organisations providing
the good and services in their pockets to get the message
across as to what we are willing to accept and support.

Share information of what we learn with our family and
friends. And finally it would help if we supported animal
protection charities. I support the "International Fund
for Animal Welfare," (IFAW) - and have done for years.

Dear Foxy,

We can stop it in two ways:

* . never use sheep again, and let them go extinct; [ I'm not sure what fabric we could use; cotton ? grown in Australia ? Skins ? But we have to kill animals for that, and they may prefer a bit of mistreatment to certain death. Or synthetics ? Processed from fossil fuels ? ] Perhaps we can process some sorts of fabric from algae.

* . or of course, treat them humanely, like we should treat all animals. Farmers aren't dills or monsters, they know that, their animals are their livelihoods.

But then again, if you're a farmer and you need advice about your production processes, just ask a city person, ideally a Green.

Love,

Joe

It appears that historically - the Australian Wool
Industry has seen sheep being abused for a long time.

However, justice is finally coming to shearing sheds
around Australia. The following link explains:
