4 Comments to “Here are many MORE things NOT to buy from Koch…”

  • how about an app for iphone and android that both lists koch industries products and scans barcodes that would identify a product that is either a koch product or contains a koch product.

  • I did not realize Koch made so much stuff. I thought they were an oil company. Definitely will keep list and refrain from purchasing anything made by these 2 scumbags.

  • This is a great idea but it could be better if it was more organized and people did it as a group. Boycotting Wal-Mart is easier because you just stay out of their stores; so the toughest thing is to get the word out. Boycotting Monsanto’s and Koch could be more effective if it was better organized starting in small groups then perhaps larger ones.

    For example if a few people got together and agreed to hand in written requests to their local grocer when they shop asking them that they boycott Koch or at least decline to give them prominent shelf space it might be more effective. It is unlikely that this would work in most cases so this can be followed up by an organized shopping event where this group buys the things they would buy anyway, excluding Koch products of course, then asks to see the management and request that they not give prime spots like the end of the aisles to Koch.

    I wrote a more detailed suggestion along this line in the web page that is linked to in my name if anyone is interested.

    If it works some stores could be encouraged to go Koch free or at least minimize the shelf space and if word gets around then the idea could expand.

  • The app is called Buycott !
