RDS - Responsible Down Standard

All Helsport down sleeping bags use only down which is certified according to the Responsible Down Standard. 

The Responsible Down Standard aims to ensure that down and feathers come from animals that have not been subjected to an unnecessary harm, and at the same time, provide retailers and consumers with greater confidence in responsible sourcing. RDS certified down is a by-product from the food industry, and are not plucked from live birds.

The goal of the Responsible Down Standard is to ensure that the water fowl in the down supply chain are treated humanely. RDS requires independent, third-party assesments of all aspects of animal rearing and handling throughout the entire supply chain.
