PETA Asia’s investigation into the cashmere industry in Mongolia—where Ralph Lauren obtains the fiber used in its products—revealed egregious cruelty to goats. Workers pinned down the gentle animals, twisted their sensitive legs, and ripped out their hair with sharp, rake-like metal combs. This violent process left some goats with bleeding wounds, and an investigator even found cashmere with skin still attached to it. This sort of cruelty is why many leading companies and brands—including ASOS, Columbia, The North Face, prAna, and Timberland—have banned the use of cashmere.

Here are some suggested talking points to use in your outreach:

  • PETA Asia’s latest investigation into the cashmere industry in Mongolia, where Ralph Lauren obtains the fiber used in its products, shows that goats endure extreme abuse and are ultimately killed—and that meaningless labels like “responsible” are a complete sham. Despite the use of these labels, investigators found that goats screamed in terror as workers pinned them down, twisted their sensitive legs, and ripped their hair out with sharp metal combs, leaving some of these animals with bleeding wounds from shearing and tearing off pieces of their skin.
  • Workers kill the goats when they no longer produce a profitable amount of cashmere—often at only 4 or 5 years old, a fraction of their natural life expectancy. These inquisitive, communicative animals may spend their final moments terrified as workers drag them to the kill floor, bash in their heads with a hammer, and slit their throats.
  • Many leading companies and brands—including ASOS, Columbia, and The North Face—have banned cashmere. This list is growing, thanks to the increasing demand for vegan fashion and home goods. No one needs to wear items made from the hair of tormented goats who die in agony in slaughterhouses. There are plenty of cozy, stylish, and luxurious vegan materials that can replace the use of cashmere today, including organic bamboo, TENCEL, organic hemp, modal, lyocell, soy-based cashmere, and other plant-based or synthetic fibers that don’t involve cruelty to animals.
