1% for the Planet
After their 35th anniversary, DOWNLITE decided to commit to sustainable practices even more. DOWNLITE announced that they would donate 1% of their e-commerce sales to 1% for the Planet, a global organization driven to accelerate smart environmental giving.
1% for the Planet realizes that the current rate of dollars spent on environmental giving is not enough to solve environmental emergency facing us right now. Only 3% of the funds from philanthropic sources are being directed towards making the planet more sustainable. DOWNLITE is compelled to contribute their profits towards supporting environmental organizations.

RDS - Responsibly Sourced Down
DOWNLITE is certified by RDS, a global certification awarded to brands that integrate animal welfare practices in their products and supply chains. The RDS seal ensures that DOWNLITE products are sourced ethically without harming animals in the process. The means of gathering raw material for their beddings and other products are all humane and environmentally friendly. DOWNLITE chose to go through the RDS certification process to ensure its customers' highest satisfaction, whether it be bulk buyers for hotels and resorts or individuals in their homes.
How Did They Get Certified?
DOWNLITE supervises and is aware of the entire supply chain of the material used to make their finished products. They select down and feathers harvested as a by-product of the poultry industry, instead of harmful, unethical animal rearing practices of growing poultry specifically to gather down.
DOWNLITE works alongside their suppliers and ensuress that waterfowls are treated fairly. This helps them in their mission to eliminate unethical practices, such as plucking down from innocent animals. A certification body from the RDS certifies every step of this process to provide unbiased feedback regarding the production practices of DOWNLITE.
The third-party certification body arrives unannounced to check to make sure that every batch is up to the standard of quality set by RDS. The labels and tracking for the down are checked regularly to prevent mixing with non-certified down. Sustainable and responsible harvesting of the down is possible through this process.
If you are looking for ethically sourced down products for your hotel or resort, look no further than DOWNLITE and rest easy knowing that you can trust this company and its product sources.
The DOWNLITE Bedding Range
DOWNLITE manufactures three types of hypoallergenic fills for their products, including down, feather, and down alternative beddings to suit the individual needs of their customers. Thousands of hotels and resorts are their regular customers due to their five star quality of products.
Their range of products allows hotels situated in any part of America to make purchases appropriate for the weather. Based on the climate of your state, choose from the wide range of downs and down alternatives for optimum customer satisfaction. You can even purchase a variety of beddings to provide your customers with a personalized hotel experience.
Down is the fluffy coating beneath the feathers of ducks and geese. Clusters of down feel softer than cotton balls with thousands of fibers. Down is lighter than cotton, and its breathable nature allows heat and humidity to escape more efficiently than cotton-based or synthetic products. Down is retardant to flames which will allow a fire-safe environment in your hotel.
Feathers are what covers ducks and geese, forming the outermost layer. Feathers are heavier than down but firmer. Not all customers like soft pillows; some will demand firm beddings, which will provide feather-based products.
Some customers can be uncomfortable with natural fills such as downs and feathers. This is why DOWNLITE provides a down alternative. Down alternatives are made of various types of polyester fibers. Here are some of the choices of down alternatives that DOWNLITE offers:
PrimaLoft®is a microfiber blend that is smooth as silk which is treated permanently for antimicrobial properties that don't wash away. This alternative down is water-resistant and highly hydrophobic. You can easily wash the products made of PrimaLoft® for a fresh hotel experience for your guests.
EnviroLoft® is an exclusive fiber created by DOWNLITE, which is made of strands thicker than polyester for increased rigidity and support. EnviroLoft® products are durable and have lower prices, so they are a popular choice for hotels and resorts.
3. Ultimate Goose Down Alternative™
The Ultimate Goose Down Alternative™ is another exclusive fiber that simulates the softness of down. It is highly malleable and adapts to sleeping positions much like memory foam, with the added benefit of breathability and warmth.
LiquiLoft® is made of gel-like fibers that mold easily according to the use.
5. Continuous Polyester Fiber
The Continuous Polyester Fiber is made of a continuous sheet of plumped up fiber, which is then cut and resized for pillows that are firm at a low cost.
Spira™ is a cluster puff fiber that forms balls and enhances volume and durability in pillows and other beddings.
With a wide range of bedding products to choose from, DOWNLITE is perfect for a customizable experience to fit the needs of every customer that walks through the doors of your hotel.
