    • Good afternoon Strom,
      Your article brought showed me how disturbing pillows can actually be. I don’t think I can sleep with a feather pillow again knowing what I know now and I will do everything I can to be conscious of what I purchase and consume. This link (https://www.ciwf.com/farmed-animals/) is about other animals being mistreated and used for their meat, wool and other things.
