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!
