North Face release alternative to duck down feathers

Popular mountain wear company The North Face have just released a new and innovative jacket that is utilizing synthetic materials to create insulation instead of the traditional ‘down’ feathers.

As you may know, down feathers are plucked from live animals and are part of an extremely cruel industry. Used in a whole host of products from clothing to pillows and doonas, the material creates a warm and soft feel which is why it is so popular. Seeing companies trial and produce alternatives to this terrible material is fantastic and we hope to continue to see more in the future.
