Boycott Part One


Each person in our home has been given the task of coming up with 3 companies they would like to boycott and 3 they would like to support and why. One child has submitted her 3 to boycott.

The summary:

Walmart and Gap because they refused to sign the Bangladesh Factory Safety Accord to improve safety conditions for the employees of their suppliers. They are not committed to worker safety.

She specifically named these three companies so I am going to roll with that. Shell, Exxon and Chevron due to oil spills that devastate the waterways and local economies and people that depend on those waterways to make a living. She acknowledges that a company can make a mistake but she said ofttimes the clean-ups are delayed and/or not done when they say they will. Or the clean-up/follow-up is not sufficient.
