Demand Company Stop Using Down

down-goose-fred-leviez

Target: Xavier Simonet, CEO of Kathmandu

Goal: Stop Kathmandu from using cruelly-sourced down feathers in its products.

The popular brand, Kathmandu, uses down feathers in many of its products but claims that all the down is “ethically sourced.” However, animal rights organization PETA recently went into the farms where Kathmandu’s down is sourced and its claims seem to be far from the truth.

Many geese were seen going through the cruel process of live plucking. Some of the geese could be heard screaming in pain while others were frozen still due to the shock and fear. The company claims to not perform live plucking because of its cruelness, however, eyewitness reports say otherwise.

Sign this petition and demand the company stop supporting this cruel industry and start using alternative materials that cause no harm to animals.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Simonet,

Your company uses down in many of its products and claims the down is “ethically sourced.” However, eyewitnesses from the animal rights organization PETA saw what truly happens at the farms your down comes from.

Eyewitness reports claim that many of the geese had large, open, bloody wounds and that live plucking was a common practice at the farms. Geese being plucked were either screaming in pain or frozen still due to the shock and fear. One down industry representative even stated that they “advertised that it’s all plucked after slaughter – nobody dares to buy it if you say it’s live plucked.”

Please consider no longer using down feathers in your products and switching to an alternative, cruelty-free material. No animal should be tortured and killed for clothing.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. YA ESTAMOS CANSADOS DE TANTA E INDESCRIPTIBLE CRUELDAD, ALTO A ESTOS CRÍMENES!!! NO QUEREMOS MÁS USO NI ABUSO DE ANIMALES PARA LAS MODAS, NO TIENE SENTIDO Y CONFORME PASA EL TIEMPO LAS SOCIEDADES SE VAN ENFERMANDO DE INDIFERENCIA EN LA RELACIÓN CON LOS ANIMALES, LA INDIFERENCIA HACIA LOS ANIMALES CON EL TIEMPO TAMBIÉN VA FORMANDO INDIFERENCIA EN LA RELACIÓN ENTRE SERES HUMANOS. TODO ESTO AFECTA LOS CÓDIGOS Y VALORES DE LA MENTE HUMANA Y ALTERA LA FORMA DE TRATARNOS ENTRE NOSOTROS COMO SOCIEDADES QUE SE ENFERMAN DE ODIO Y SOBERBIA. VER LA MUERTE, LA TORTURA Y EL DOLOR COMO ALGO NORMAL ENFERMA A LAS SOCIEDADES. ALTO A LA VIOLENCIA.

  2. DITCH THESE CRUEL PRODUCTS NOW.

  3. Feathers and fur belong to the animal born with them and NOT on or for humans. EVER!!!!
