A sustainable approach

We’re determined to leave the planet in better shape than we found it. Down may be a renewable resource and fully compostable, but we’re taking it a step further. Our team is working towards a zero-landfill goal, recycling everything we can, using landfill avoidance strategies and requiring sustainable business practices across our entire supply chain.

We also work hard to reclaim down and feather from used products, re-process it to our high standards and give it a second life.
