Animal protection is a critical component of ethical fashion. Fashion owes a huge debt to animals yet most brands don’t know about animal welfare in their supply chains, nor the suffering of billions of animals behind the production of our clothing. But this is changing.
Shoppers, designers and brands have the power to build the ethical fashion movement, ensure animal protection is a key priority.
While there are significant animal welfare issues to be addressed across the global fashion trade, right now, we want to see action on four spotlight issues. These are mulesing in the Australian wool industry, farming and trapping wild animals for fur and exotic leather, and live plucking down from ducks and geese.
