BikeBookBread Posted June 15, 2009 Share Posted June 15, 2009 I think today is a posting record for me: started 3 threads! When you make purchasing decisions, consider the political policies of the companies from which you purchase? Now I don't mean going up on the web and doing a bunch of research, but.... I just found out that the manufacturer of my very, very favorite "green" cleaning products actively and vocally supports a cause that I do not. I have personally supported this company for several years -- before they become hip and mainstream, they relied upon word of mouth to do their marketing, and I was one of their first "advocates". They have been good to me: given me tons of free stuff, coupons, etc. Their products changed the way I clean! I bragged about them on my blog, and even suggested them here because they work wonderfully. I know we would never do lots of things if we examined them closely.......watch a movie due to the politics of whoever, shop at a store because of the politics of a member of their Board, buy clothing because the manufacturer relies upon child labor, etc... I'm just looking for some insight... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
