Demand Kate Hudson and her Fabletics Line to stop using down!
“‘Down’ is the undercoating of waterfowl (goose, duck or swan) and consists of light, fluffy filaments growing from a central quill point, thereby creating a three dimensional structure which traps air and gives down insulating ability.” – Guide to the Labeling of Down and Feathers Enforcement Guidelines, March 2000 Down is designed to help keep waterfowl warm, but it is now commonly used and promoted as a “natural” stuffing for warm clothing and bedding* for humans instead. Body feathers (from ducks, geese and other birds kept for meat or eggs) are also used to stuff pillows, cushions, bedding/clothing and other such items. As ducks and geese are the primary animals used for the production of down, this piece will predominantly focus on how the down and feather industries affect these particular birds. * It takes the down from approximately 75 + birds to make an average comforter.Sign PetitionSign Petition
