We use efficient flat packaging, re-cycled materials and repurposing of by-products. The latter is the case of our goose feathers used for our popular VITA EOS feather lamps. All feathers used are a by-product of the food industry. Goose feathers that would otherwise be burned are instead sanitized and repurposed thus diminishing the environmental impact. NONE of our goose feathers are derived from live or mistreated geese. VITA is required by law, and all major retailers around the world, to document the origin and proper handling of all geese and feathers.
