They also refuse to train, they disgust me and I cannot tolerate the perception in the community that they are saving animals.

    Adopt from a no kill shelter or animal rescue agency. These are the people that are saving animals. Google RSPCA kill rates and read for yourself.
    The RSPCA is also responsible for selling dogs and cats to universities for animal testing. They mustn't get enough in the way of donations.

    I boycott any form of hormonal contraceptive. That's really my only main one.

    James Hardie, they make building products that contain asbestos. When people sued them they tried to drag it out, moved their head office to avoid paying out their workers and to the people who used their products

    Gunns Timber, dodgy ******** from Tassie. They tried to bribe the government, persecute hippies and tried to chop down old growth forests.

    Oh and we once bought shares in ERG who went from 0.30 per share down to zero. Terrible investment.

    I have it read this while thread, very interesting reading and some points to think about.

    I am another that boycotts Telstra, refuse to use them after stuffing us around for years over charges that were not ours, and they sent us to two different debt collectors to both we were able to prove that we owed nothing. They just would not give up when proven in the wrong. However it is unfortunate that they own all of the lines (not sure if this is everywhere or just in our area) and the provider we choose had to wait for Telstra to connect home phone and Internet, so months of waiting

    I boycott telstra as well.

    They disconnected our home phone years ago even though we were in credit. Where we lived then had NO mobile phone reception so I called from work.

    The a hole who I got disagreed with me, called me names and refused to transfer me to a supervisor. I was 2 months pregnant with ds2 at the time as well so a bit emotional.

    My work colleague could hear me and helped file a complaint as she could state I never once said anything mean or the like.

    I'm rambling on here but basically ever since then I refuse to have anything to do with them.

    Stockdale & Lego real estate. They don't know how to look after their tenants and their attitude is shocking. They employ teenagers as property managers who have no experience and have no knowledge of real estate.

    I bought the Shop Ethical! App. I'm so disappointed with a lot of the companies listed now!
