Global Traceable Down Standard (TDS)

A standard applied to the more sustainable/humane use of down or feathers. The scope of the Global Traceable Down Standard (TDS) encompasses animal welfare, including the unacceptable practices of force feeding live plucking, and molt harvesting along with traceability, from parent from to factory, to ensure the compliant down and feather material can be documented as the material used in finished certified goods.
