In an effort to do my small part to harm the extreme right-wing efforts of the Koch brothers, I will be henceforth doing my best to avoid purchasing any and all products from Koch Industries. If you are not familiar with them, they have been secretly funding various tea party efforts and have at least one Governor in their pocket.
For those of you willing to join me in this effort, these are the brands to avoid:
Here’s the list, if you can’t read the above picture:
Lycra • Coolmax • Tactel • SolarMax • Polarguard • Dacron • Thermolite
Comforel • Antron Carpet Fiber • Stainmaster Carpet • Cordura
VanityFair • AngelSoft • Quilted Northern • Sparkle • Brawny
MardiGras • Dixie • DensArmorPlus • Platinum Plywood • ToughRock
Demak Up • KittenSoft • Lotus • Moltonel • Tenderly • Nouvelle Recycling
Okay • Colhogar • Delica • Inversoft • Tutto
To make it even easier to not buy from the Koch brothers, someone awesome decided to make an app. The Buycott App allows you to scan items while you’re shopping and will let you know if they’re made by a company you’ve pledged not to support, such as anything by Koch Industries. It’s available for iOS and Android, so go check it out!
