UGG ‘Plant Power’ and more vegan slippers (2021)
Posted through .
It’s a cold winter night. You have vegan hot chocolate in one hand and Animal gender in another, while you’re snug in a comfy vegan blanket. Everything looks perfect, until you look at your bare, frozen feet! Fluffy slippers are in great need of you, but they certainly shouldn’t come at the expense of sheep, mink, or any other animal.
When looking for vegan slippers, pay attention to fur, sheepskin, suede, leather, silk, and wool. Instead, look for Sherpa (also known as “faux sheepskin”), faux fur, polyester, and velor. To make it easier for you, here are PETA’s top picks:
UGG, whose entire line of footwear was previously made from stolen wool from animals and other body parts, has just launched an all-vegan line, including slippers! This victory follows pressure from PETA and thousands of its supporters and will help prevent the slaughter of nice sheep. Made from carbon neutral plant materials such as sugar cane and wood pulp, these shoes tread slightly on the environment.
This exciting first step is further proof that the future of fashion is vegan – now we need to make UGG quit all sheepskin and wool. Take action below!

Will furry slippers cause the next pandemic?
While the companies mentioned above offer animal-friendly slippers, UGG, Jimmy Choo, Louis Vuitton and other popular brands do not yet offer vegan options. Fur farms – where sensitive animals such as mink are crammed into cages with no space to roam or clean themselves – have become hot spots for the novel coronavirus around the world. Likewise, in the woolen farms, the workers cut the sheep and sew their wounds without painkillers. These farms are time bombs for the next pandemic. Avoid animal abuse and urge these companies to stop using animals for clothing.

Fur, wool and other animal materials belong to their original owners
Non-vegan slippers use wool and sheepskin, which are great for finding herbs to make you feel better. Sheep use this skill to treat members of their flock who are sick. Companies sometimes make slipper linings from minks, solitary beings who prefer to explore on their own. Sheep and mink are just a few of the many animals whose lives you can spare by purchasing vegan slippers and other items. Need help with shopping? Check out PETA’s guide to vegan clothing.
