Sustainable to the Core
DOWNLITE is a leader in traceability practices, setting numerous welfare and responsibility standards across the industry.
Ethical and sustainable business practices have been at the core of our business since its inception.
DOWNLITE’s commitment to environmentally friendly extends to further extending the life of down and feather by recycling it. We offer high quality recycled down and feather fill that are certified under the Global Recycled Standard.
DOWNLITE can also supply down certified under the International Down Standard (IDS). This 3rd party system provides traceability and responsibility for all of our materials.
Most of what DOWNLITE does as a company—across our Outdoor, Home, and Hospitality divisions—qualifies for Oeko-Tex Standard 100, underscoring our commitment to consumer confidence, high product safety and ensuring that no harmful substances are used in our manufacturing processes.
An ethical approach from farm to package
An innovation mindset has helped us better manage the circularity of our product life cycle. By developing new services such as down-trac, our industry-first product tracking technology, we’ve reinforced our long-standing commitment to the ethical sourcing of down and fill product.
We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that any material we source comes only from ethically-raised animals. We’ve taken it a step further, collaborating with our outerwear partners to assist in developing standards for responsible sourcing. Today, those two standards are common place in the market for apparel and are gradually being adopted across international markets.
