The Ultimate Pillow Fight

November 30, 2013

How do down feathers often make it into pillows, comforters, and jackets?



Terrified, screaming birds are grabbed by their wings and pinned by their necks as workers painfully tear their feathers from their bodies, often leaving gaping wounds that are sewn shut without any pain relief.

Down is used for pillows, bedding, coats, camping equipment, and more–but it’s super-easy to avoid by always choosing cruelty-free down alternatives!

Want to do more to help? Share our new “Down Industry in 60 Seconds” video with your friends, family, and everyone else you know and urge them to be down-free!

We are birds,
You pull our
Feathers, we cry
Out and moan.
Those feathers are
Leave us alone!

    Si j’ai bien comprit, il arrache le duvet sur des Oies vivantes, c’est barbare.

    Such a cruel industry like so many involving animals . It never seizes to amaze me how cruel people are .
    I do hope so much that people will be educated how down is obtained and will seek alternatives .

    I never knew they were still alive when they were plucked. Thank you for educating me. I’ve shared the video on Facebook.

    This is so terrible, I’m surely going to dream about it. I just feel like crying right now and my appetite has vanished. No more down pillows for me.

    I mentioned my appetite because I just prepared supper…
