My Guilty Conscience was Right

I am sad to find out that down is as inhumane as I feared ... Now those down pillows at hotels will be even more of a guilty pleasure.

Learn more about down. It seems they tear the feathers from the birdies and let it grow back 4-5 times before finally slaughtering them. I don't know what I expected, but that's pretty unpleasant.

There's a noted animal friendly French company that pampers geese as they collect down. They use eastern meditiation techniques and Finnish spa therapies to produce high quality comforters. The geese also have personal physical trainers. When they can no longer produce down of fine quality, they retire to a old geezer community where they watch old discovery re-runs all day. And all these products are competively affordable in the States thanks to French gov't subsidies! Thanks France!
