Can’t stand the thought of geese being plucked alive for down? Neither can we. Here are five easy ways that you can encourage people to join the flock of compassionate folks who aren’t down with down:
1. Down-Free Vacationing
Traveling soon? Give the hotel a heads-up that you require down-free bedding for optimal relaxation, and be sure to confirm your down-free reservation upon check-in. If the hotel is accommodating, leave a nice comment on its Facebook page so the public will know.
2. Up With Alternatives!
Holiday shopping is in full swing. Let’s raise the revenue of compassionate companies. Remind your friends and family to buy products that don’t contain down. They’re cheaper and more comfortable. Check out PETA’s resources, and tell your friends and family about down-free bedding, coats, and even ski gear!
3. Raise Your Voice.
Lululemon is still being a sourpuss and selling products that contain down. Tell the yoga-apparel company that you’re opting to namaste away from it until it ditches the down.
4. Down Is Harmless? As If!
You’d be surprised by how many people are clueless about down. Share actor Alicia Silverstone’s exposé on your social media pages, and your friends will be totally buggin’ at the thought of ever purchasing it again.
5. Some Down Is on the Down-Low. Expose It.
Check out these nine places where down could be hiding, and share your insight with everyone.
