A new relationship with animals, nature and each other.

The Uggly Truth

The message is simple: Please don’t buy Ugg boots.

Some very distressing new video shows dogs in China being literally skinned alive to make imitations of the trendy footwear.

A report n The Sun, a U.K. newspaper, tells the whole story. Please be warned: there are shocking photos of the dogs.

The real Ugg boots are made of sheepskin. And, frankly, the sheep in Australia whose skins are used are not treated very well either.

So the best way to stay beautiful is probably to stay away from anything Ugg-ly.
