On our minds is PETA’s latest reveal causing ethical brands such as Stella McCartney and Patagonia to instantly cut ties with one of their wool suppliers in Argentina. The supplier, which has previously been praised for their “responsibly sourced wool”, got into trouble after PETA exposed some harsh abuse of sheep by workers at the farm.

McCartney revealed her devastation in a statement meaning that the brand is now looking into sourcing vegan wools (much like they have always used animal-free alternatives to leather and fur for their collections) and PETA’s  president Ingrid Newkirk responded by thanking McCartney for continuously going down the cruelty-free route, encouraging other brands to follow suit.
