Support Hotel Chain’s Switch to Down-Free Bedding

Target: Barry Sternlicht, CEO and Founder of 1 Hotels

Goal: Praise 1 Hotels for no longer purchasing down-feather bedding.

1 Hotels is a luxury hotel chain that has made the compassionate choice to to no longer buy down-feather bedding. This will spare countless birds for unnecessary pain, torture, and premature death.

Ducks used for down are typically kept in small, dirty cages where they have limited access to food, clean water, and sunshine. Every six weeks, these ducks have their feathers plucked from their bodies without the use of any painkillers until the duck is killed. Their lives are full of misery, pain, and fear. Thankfully, 1 Hotels will not be supporting this cruelty any longer.

Sign this petition and praise 1 Hotels for making the compassionate change to down-free bedding.


Dear Mr. Sternlicht,

Recently, 1 Hotels has made the compassionate choice to no longer purchase down-feather bedding. I was ecstatic to hear this news. Now, countless ducks will be spared from torture and early death.

As you know, ducks used for down live miserable lives filled with fear and pain. Every six weeks, they have their delicate feathers ripped from their bodies without the use of any painkillers. When they are not being plucked, they are typically kept in small, dirty cages where they have limited access to food and clean water. When feather production reduces, the duck is cruelly killed.

Thank you for deciding to no longer support this cruel industry. I can only hope more hotels follow in your footsteps.

  1. Thank you so much! This is a step toward ending the deliberate torturing of innocent birds for the comfort of selfish people.

  2. THE Only pillow i get good sleep on is a 75% down one but i bought it second hand, I need more of these pillows but after reading this i will never buy another down pillow again…cruelty is not acceptable.
