How cruel and totally unnecessary .I couldn't watch the whole video as the beginning was so horrific. I will never, ever buy any product made from feathers after seeing what pain those poor geese have to endure. Noted. Thank you Simone!

OK, signed, but I feel so ILL!

Jeepers can't MANIND get a life and leave the fur, feathers on the animals instead of trying to wear, sleep etc, in them??

GOT AN OUTSTANDING IDEA, let's give MANKIND all HOT FLASHES AND NIGHT SWEATS, they won't want to have anything on warm!!!!!

This is so horrible. I used to buy feather pillows, since I learnt about plucking I stopped. There's never a label saying if the birds were alive when their feathers were plucked, but even if they are already dead, feather pillows equals to suffering and death.

Once again, the human races trawls the depths of its minds and comes up with another idea to legally torture animals for that extra dollar. How traumatic for the poor geese and all for the sake of 'a little bit of luxury'. Fur and feathers belong on and to their rightful owners!!!

I would like to track down all the people who work at the companies that do this and RIP EVERY ONE OF THEIR PUBES OUT to use as lining for bird nests & in sleeping bags which get donated to the homeless!


I'd rather be unemployed, hungry & homeless compared to doing this for a living and having any kind of cash in my pockets.
