Do you boycott any companies?

Some people boycott certain companies because they find them unethical. Some weeks ago I saw someone posting an image asking people to not buy any Nestlé products, for example.

I personally don't boycott any company. If I don't like your products I simply won't buy them and ignore them if I see them on supermarket shelves or something.

Sure, it sucks that a lot of companies are unethical, some more than others, but that's like pretty much every big company out there. So what's the only option left? Live a very humble existence?

What about you? Do you boycott any companies?

I've never boycotted any companies for ethical reasons, but I have boycotted companies when I thought they were making crappy products.

What they could do without being held back is my question.
Shredder could've done more than blow up the Channel Six building.
I don't mean as far as murdering Splinter, but think of the possibilities if censors were not an issue.
Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

Why? Boycotts are only effective if the bulk of the customers are in on it, or if the business is so small they can't afford a loss in customers. And in the case of bigger businesses a successful boycott will just result in layoffs if anything, worst case scenario the assets are just bought by a different company and things just continue on with new owners.

Companies IMO should only be boycotted if they're for ethical reasons (etc workers being treated like garbage). If it's nonsense like boycotting for something someone said on television that you're sponsoring, then no.

So far, not really. I've only stopped buying if they made a change I didn't like. (But damn I still miss the Nissin Teriyaki Beef Chow Mein...)

Oh yeah, screw that stuff. Bay Turtles, I mean. I'm not even bothering with Rise tbh, so it's more due to me outgrowing the Turtles than a "boycott".

Netflix

I boycott Netflix until the company stop dividing itself into countries. Everything should be aviable all over the world, and if there are no dubs or subtitles in the language the viewer wants, he or she has to stick with the original language. We don't have the Internet to keep barriers.

Not intentionally... but I'm not a big brand buyer.

I wouldn't use the word boycott. But of course there is things that I have no interest in supporting and do not.
