TOKYO — Japanese fast-fashion retailer Uniqlo said Thursday that it will stop using wool from suppliers who engage in mulesing, a method of pest control that animal rights activists consider to be cruel and inhumane.
The move comes shortly after Uniqlo encountered a protest from PETA animal rights activists in Manila, where it opened a store earlier this month. The protesters had threatened to organize a boycott of the Japanese fast fashion retail giant over its wool-sourcing practices.
