A short video in which a goose screams in pain as his or her feathers are ripped out by the fistful: That’s all it took to persuade actor, model, and activist Mena Suvari to ditch down forever.

A committed vegan who buys only cruelty-free cosmetics, Mena had never seen the suffering behind every pillow, comforter, and jacket stuffed with down feathers. The second that she did, she immediately trashed every down-filled item in her home and began searching for compassionate alternatives.

She was clearly still shaken up by the cruelty that she had seen when she sat down with PETA to discuss her decision to stop buying down. In the video below, she encourages everyone to inform themselves about the suffering of birds used for down. Watch her powerful testimonial now:

Mena also posed for a stunning new print ad urging people to spare birds a terrifying life—and death—by refusing to buy anything made with down.
