GildaLee27 said 20 : Based on this video, I immediately wrote to Patagonia (including the company s CEO, Rose Marcario) expressing my disapproval and requesting Patagonia s public acknowl- edgement and apology for using Ovis 21, the cruel and inhumane supplier. Lucy_P, said 21 : Stella has integrity. I wish Patagonia would follow suit, instead of offering up lame excuses. Whenever animals are treated as commodities instead of the thinking, feeling beings they are abuse inevitably follows. Vague assurances mean nothing and happy sounding labels are a farce. The only humane materials are vegan ones. Thanks to PETA for exposing what really goes on in the wool industry! Rachel-Erin Hendrix, said 22 : The real rub is there are total ethical and humane ways to raise sheep for wool production! As a wool spinner and knitter I have met some wonderful and kind sheep herders! There is no excuse for this, big corporations don t care about the process, just the pro fi ts, and that is utterly disgusting. References Allwood, J. M., Laursen, S.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
