WASHINGTON – The animal rights organisation PETA has submitted a formal complaint to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) against the Responsible Down Standard (RDS) and Responsible Animal Fibre standards that are controlled by US-based not-for-profit Textile Exchange.

PETA claims that apparel brands that use RDS and RAF labels on apparel are ‘deceiving customers’ and it’s asked the FTC to require Textile Exchange to remove all ‘misleading statements from its marketing and issue corrective explanations’.

“We have not had any communications from PETA regarding this complaint,” Textile Exchange told Ecotextile News, “we will await any FTC assessment, and support the process wherever needed.”
