For a padded jacket how many geese freeze to death?
At the age of two months, little more than chicks, the geese suffer the first plucking, without any anesthesia; a procedure so painful that some of them die of fright.
Every two months, they will suffer the same terrible operation, till 8 months age, when the quality of the plumage, due to repeated plucking will always be lower.
At that point, the “lucky” ones will eventually beheaded directly to the slaughterhouse, the other ones will have to endure another torture, fattening forced to produce foie gras.
We therefore ask the European Parliament and the US government to enact a law prohibiting the exploitation of geese to produce clothing that contains feathers! Ask manufacturers of goose down duvets and goose jackets to use synthetic materials, which are much higher performance and with higher yield.
We also ask for a law that enables full traceability of the garment with clear indications about the content of the padding.
Please sign the Petition to Stop goose tortures and tremendous suffering for the production of padded dresses.
Please don’t forget to join to our Facebook dedicated group No more goose down clothing to give us more International weight.
We’ll don’t stop till we’ll reach our target.
