    Ive been looking for a site like this for a while. Part of my new years resolution was to be more concious about what I buy and who I give my hard earned cahs to. I always complain about how fucked the world is but hopefully this is a step in the right direction….


    Its actually pretty disturbing stuff. Anyway..I wont preach… if you want to know more then check:

    This site will tell you all you need to know. In particular check Nike, Coke, and Nestle.

    :gimp:

    I didn't look at this, but do try to keep informed on these things and read books, a selection of newspapers & watch lots of documentaries.

    I won't wear Nike & avoid Coke, wouldn't shop at Gap and generally prefer / choose unbranded / independent stuff.

    The Nestle thing a few years ago, when they were selling powered milk to 3rd world Africa while actively trying to 'educate' / misinform women that breast milk was bad, in countries where the water supply (needed to make the powered milk) kills was shocking. So I kinda avoid Nestle too.

    Also cos Nescafe is :piss:
