Mind your own business boycott

March 5, 2014
Lehigh Acres Citizen

To the editor:

If the billionaire Koch brothers and the organizations they support are spending almost $2 million to stick their noses into Florida elections, I suggest we stop giving their companies our money. Here are the brands we can boycott:

- Georgia Pacific paper products (including Dixie cups and other serve ware; AngelSoft, Quilted Northern and Soft N Gentle toilet tissue; Brawny paper towels; and Vanity Fair, Zee and Sparkle Napkins)

- Georgia Pacific building products (including fiberboard, sheathing, gypsum board and drywall)

- In vista textiles (including Stain master carpet, Dacron fiberfill in bedding, and Lycra, CoolMax, Cordura and Antron fabrics)

There is also a smartphone application called Buycott that people can use to scan a barcode and see the entire chain of corporate ownership for a specific product - or join boycotts of multiple companies based on lobbying or other business practices. Visit: for information.
