Alicia Silverstone & PETA: Buy Down-Free!

This disturbing video about cruelty to geese and ducks was published on 13 Dec 2012. Alicia Silverstone (vegan, activist, actress and author of The Kind Diet) teams up with PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) to raise awareness of this cruelty.

Millions of geese and ducks are violently plucked until they're bloody in order to make down-filled comforters and jackets. Buying down supports the cruelty of the foie gras industry, in which birds have tubes rammed down their throats and food pumped into their stomachs in order to increase their liver size for profit.

Join activists like Alicia and buy only down-free products that do not harm animals. For really good ideas about living a cruelty free lifestyle, read Alicia’s blog about The Kind Life, or buy the book online (The Kind Diet- an absolutely fantastic read!). On her website, Alicia also shares her cruelty-free guide to holiday shopping.
