Urge Z Gallerie to Ditch Down Bedding and Pillows!

UN LAB Middleware Label: Title Ends

Z Gallerie stuffs many of its decorative accent pillows and bedding offerings with down feathers, which often come from birds who either are force-fed for the cruel production of foie gras or are live-plucked.

Force-feeding is a painful process in which birds have tubes rammed down their throats and their stomachs pumped so full of corn mush that their livers swell to as much as 10 times their normal size. Foie gras producers boost their profits by selling the feathers from these force-fed birds.

Other birds used for down are often pinned down as hurried workers yank fistfuls of feathers from their sensitive bodies while they are still alive, often plucking them so violently that they rip open their delicate skin. The gaping wounds are then sewn up using a needle and thread but no painkillers.

The vast majority of birds used for down spend their entire lives in crowded, filthy conditions on factory farms. When they are sent to slaughter, their throats are slit—often while fully conscious—and many are scalded to death in defeathering tanks. Regardless of whether they're force-fed or live-plucked, all birds used for down are eventually killed in a violent, painful way.

Customers do not care what fills a decorative or accent pillow but are forced to purchase down either unknowingly or because Z Gallerie offers no other option.

Z Gallerie understands the benefits of cruelty-free synthetic materials, as the company already features some down-alternative bedding and accent pillows in its stores and online. Please urge Z Gallerie to take a compassionate stance for geese by no longer selling down.
