I'm no UGGS

Facts about UGGS:

The fleeces used to produce Uggs come from Australia’s sheep industry, which has a long history of animal abuse. For its part, UGG Australia does not own or raise the sheep killed to make its boots, and to its credit the company has a policy against purchasing fleeces from producers that practice mulesing.

However, UGG Australia claims that the fleeces it purchases are a “byproduct of the meat industry.” This claim is clearly intended to create the impression that the fleeces in question are karmically neutral since they would go to waste if not made into garments.

But even a cursory look at sheep industry economics reveals this assertion to be disingenuous. The reality is that Australian sheep producers essentially have two streams of income derived from each animal they raise—revenue from meat and revenue from the fleece. It turns out that the value of fleeces accounts for a significant portion of the total revenue gained from each animal. Fleece values fluctuate dramatically but, based on US prices and the fact that Australian fleeces are heavier than American fleeces, it’s safe to say the fleece from each animal provides sheep producers with something like an additional $10 in revenue. And given that UGG Australia has sold more than $700 million worth of their sheepskin boots in a single year, this brand is certainly a major factor in propping up Australia’s entire sheep industry.
