    Pork, eggs & chicken that isn't free range.
    Coles milk

    And.... My local baby bunting store. They have the worst service ever. I have left my potential purchase on the counter & walked out TWICE after waiting for ages while the staff chatted 2 metres away.

    Baby Beehinds cloth nappies because they treated me like poo when I said something about their limited edition nappy not being as great as all their other nappies were.

    Cars made in the USA and Germany as they are overrated and deliver bad quality for the $$$ you end up paying for them. Sure they are luxurious, but the engines die way too quickly.

    I have actually read this whole tread 21pages

    For me,
    Bonds - as the advertise how "aussie" they are etc but keep closing down the factories here that make them and go overseas and still charge huge amounts (plus there sizing is soooo small!!)

    Gloria Jeans - 1.as dont like the coffee, 2. find them the most expensive and 3. due to the church connection.

    Regarding woolies and coles, I was shopping at Foodland, IGA etc and it was sooo expensive, gone back to woolies and it is heaps cheaper. ( I dont buy any of the store's brand stuff though)

    Prefer to buy organic and australian made, but there is sooooo many stuff at there, which has history etc that I wouldnt like

    Wow. Our local GJ is run by people from our church and all the members go there to have their connect groups and other meet ups. So I avoid it as I am not a person for connect groups.

    OMG YES! I don't boycott anyone but it pi$$es me that they claim to be gentle to the aquatic environment, but don't care about killing Orangutans. Practice what you preach peoples!!!
    I find most of the "enviro friendly" products use palm oil. Eco Store, Earth, even Moo Goo! I guess they use it because it's a "natural" product but, yup, VERY misleading when they claim to be "saving" the environment. I've given up on them all as it's a very clever marketing ploy and I now make my own cleaning stuff.

    Isn't ABC classified as a private centre (for profit)? My DS is in a council run centre, so not privately owned and I find that great, but I really can't compare as it is his first centre.

    yes now that is is run by goodstart childcare which is an amalgamation of four charities, however it is still all of the same staff and policies, Im not saying all of them are bad but my daughter has been to 4 of them( we move alot with hubby in the army) and there were only 2 staff out of all of them that were good. One of them left my 6 month old on the floor screaming with poo all down her legs and vomit on her chest, while the said staff member was painting the classroom window. when i walked in I said what going on why is emma crying, she said WELL I CANT HOLD HER ALL DAY CAN I. I picked up bub walked out and never went back.

    I read their statement on their website about where they source their palm oil from and their environmental stance. I'm happy to continue buying their products.
