What Do YOU Want to do With Pam Anderson’s Uggs?

Written by PETA | October 3, 2007

Remember what Pam Anderson said a few months ago about the whole Uggs craze?

“I feel so guilty for that craze being started around Baywatch days – I used to wear them with my red swimsuit to keep warm – never realizing that they were SKIN! Do NOT buy UGGs! Buy Stella McCartney or Juicy boots – I’m looking for alternatives myself for my boys and the men in my life! I’m designing some right now for my family and will try and have some available on my Web site soon.”

Well, Pam dug the original Uggs out of her closet and offered them to us to help draw attention to the cruelty involved in the Australian wool industry (Uggs are made of Australian sheep skins), and this is where you come in. We want to hear your best ideas on how to use them to bring attention to this important issue. Feel free to post your ideas as comments or send them to me directly. We’ll announce the best idea on the blog in couple of weeks.

Here are a couple of my own ideas to get you started, though admittedly these aren’t the most exciting.

  1. Offer them to the Hard Rock Café to be displayed along with Pam’s quote.
  2. Use them in some kind of demo with the slogan being “Give Cruelty the Boot”
  3. Use them in an ad saying “Uggs . . . Australian for Cruelty”

    Offering a story to Enews! Or asking to partner with the Kardashians would spread the most awareness to UGGS main buyers of young women and teenage girls.

    I think that Oprah needs to stop advertising these boots in her magazine and it’s a real shame that she has them featured in her December 2013 Favorite Things issue as one of her favorite things.

    Does anyone know where I can get cruelty free ugg boots in Australia. I’ve been trying to find the ones that Pamela Anderson was bringing out but haven’t been able to locate them online.

  • carli says:

    i had uggs for about a year then i had to do a report on animal abuse and things about how uggs are made came up as 1 of the serch items so i read the whole article on how uggs are made. 5 seconds later as i was in tears i threw my uggs right out of the window. now i have shoes that look exactly like uggs but they are fake fur and now i dont feel any guilt.

    I purchased a pair of uggs without being educated and I have bad feelings of these being delivered but I called and they told me to resend it back…

    ohhh! i feel so bad i just bought a pair of uggs because i thought they were werm and comfy. i new they used sheep wool but i didnt know the sheep were abused. when u get wool i thought you would just give the sheep a haircut or shave it off. its not like i can give them away i can’t throw away that kind of money.
