PoLaRpEaKWhy not use something renewable and natural, that we've been cultivating for thousands of years rather than some petroleum products?
Well for insulation, primaloft has met the blue sign criteria. If you don't know what the blue sign is it's pretty much maximin productivity and enviromentally friendly. So there is zero reason to use goose down. Thermoball by primaloft is just as good and is more enviromentally friendly than goose down, without the animal cruelty part.
And as for fake fur. Yeah I guess you just can't win on that front. You either have to destroy the earth with petrouleum based products or you have to use animal products. It's kinda fucked.
As long as the animals are treated humanly I don't really have a problem. That's why I was shocked when Patagonia was accused of this. All the high end outerwear companies try to use ehtical practicies. But I guess you cant control the bottom line of employees who hate their life.
