EDDIE BAUER IS RDS-CERTIFIED WE ARE ONE OF THE FIRST BRANDS TO COMMIT TO USING DOWN FROM RDS-COMPLIANT SOURCES.
RDS is an independent standard to ensure humane treatment of the waterfowl providing down and feathers for apparel and home products. The welfare of the birds is respected at all times; live plucking and force feeding are strictly prohibited. Each stage in the supply chain is audited by a third-party certification body, and only products with 100% certified down and feathers carry the RDS logo. In order for Eddie Bauer to be RDS-certified, our corporate offices and distribution center are randomly audited by the certification body to ensure that our systems, processes, training, staff, management, and records are and continue to be in full compliance with the standard.
