will never buy down again since finding out 50 to 80 percent of the world's down market comes from live-plucked birds, IKEA independently verified the figures, found them to be accurate and, as a result, canceled an order of down-filled furniture from China who produce 80 percent of the world's down and feathers.

Many geese used for down are held down by workers who tear out the birds' feathers while the animals shriek in pain and terror. This process is repeated multiple times throughout the birds' lives. Birds are often plucked so hard that their skin rips open, leaving gaping wounds that workers crudely stitch back together in the same unsterile environment in which the birds were plucked. All this is done without any anesthetics. "Live plucking of geese or ducks can never be done humanely,"

Many of the birds who are used for down are also used for foie gras (French for "fatty liver"). Foie gras is produced by cramming a tube down birds' throats and force-feeding them until their livers become diseased and swell to up to 10 times their normal size.

Down is expensive and loses its insulating ability when wet. The insulating capabilities of cruelty-free synthetic fillers such as PrimaLoft and Thinsulate persist in all weather conditions and stay warm even when wet .
