The FOUR PAWS brand-check
Are your favourite brands mulesing-free? Are they making any effort to transition away from this painful mutilation? Are they concerned about the welfare of the sheep in their supply chain? Check out the brand ranking below to find out. The ranking includes brands from outdoor, fashion, and sport, and is divided into five categories. These categories evaluate the efforts the brands are making to transition away from mulesing.
Mulesing is only practiced in Australia, however, the Australian wool industry is the biggest global producer of wool for clothing worldwide, which makes mulesing a global issue. The good news is: ending mulesing is possible. Luckily, pain-free solutions, where farmers transition to more resistant sheep breeds, are available and tested. Due to the lack of political leadership on the anti-mulesing issue, it is up to YOU to end mulesing once and for all. We need to demand certified non-mulesed wool or wool with a butt – as we at FOUR PAWS like to call it. With every purchase decision we make, we affect how lambs are being treated – let's support mulesing-free brands and change the lives of millions of lambs!
