Buy Lists

I know there is no ethical consumption under capitalism/one probably can’t avoid ALL brands/companies that have something wrong about them, but in effort to try to make a better choice in where my money goes, I’ll try to keep these lists and charts and do what I can do– spread awareness and highlight brands and practices I’m more enthusiastic to support. If you’d like an addition, let me know!

For the purposes of this page, “Natural” will mean recognizable ingredients like vitamins and fruit. Vegan will mean they do not use animals or animal products (including honey). BDS will mean they are not owned by companies that support Israeli occupation and apartheid. Fair Trade will mean that workers are paid a living wage.
