Urge Caesars to Drop Down
To produce down pillows, comforters, or jackets, birds are often pinned down as hurried workers yank fistfuls of feathers from the birds’ sensitive bodies while they are still alive, often plucking them so violently that they rip open the birds’ delicate skin, and then sew up the gaping wounds using a needle and thread and no painkillers.
Buying down can also support the cruelty of the foie gras and meat industries because many farmers who raise birds for food make an extra profit by selling their feathers as well. When these birds are sent to slaughter, their throats are slit—often while fully conscious—and many are scalded to death in defeathering tanks. All down comes from birds who suffer and die violently and painfully.
Caesars (which owns Caesars Palace, Harrah’s, Planet Hollywood, Paris, Rio, Flamingo, Bally’s, and many more) clearly understands the benefits of cruelty-free synthetic materials—the company uses synthetic bedding in all of its hotel rooms except a few at Caesars Palace.
Please join us in asking Caesars to drop down in all its hotel rooms.
