Rules concerning down for a fluffy duvet

The EU has strict laws when it comes to animal breeding for down production. The prevention of cruelty to animals consists of a framework concerning animal breeding, handling and transport, and also forbids any live-plucking. Each member of the EU has signed these documents that bounds them to follow these laws. Asian countries have their own framework concerning these matters, and are generally inferior when it comes to animal welfare.

Canada has consistently refused to sign any documents in accordance with the guidelines of the EU, and therefore, has a more vaguely formed attitude concerning animal rights. In most cases, down and feathers are collected from birds that primarily are raised to be eaten. That way, it's possible to make use of the entire bird. In order for a producer to be able to guarantee that the product is produced in accordance with European ethical animal welfare, the down must be traceable from European farms. The European Food Safety Authority is responsible of controlling that the legislation is complied with. Läs vidare om regler för dun. >>
