    I had boycotted nestle but had to go back with my tail between my legs when we had NO other feed to try her on as she had reacted to every single elemental feed on the market. I didnt even know they did a elemental feed until the dietician said we needed to try it, and you know what I didnt even flinch at the thought if it. Yes i know they are a bad company but heck if they have a feed that DD can tolerate then I will use it I dont care who makes its it.

    I also wouldn't buy a pet from a pet shop or backyard breeder. My dogs are both from registered breeders, and my GPs are all rescues. If you can't afford to pay for a dog from a registered breeder, then there is no way you will be able to afford all the vaccinations, parasite treatments and vet bills.

    Same and totally agree with the above.

    Boycott cage eggs whereever possible. Fresh eggs from happy little chooks taste so much better too.

    Another thing I try and boycott is producers that overpackage. I cringe when I open a product and it has an outer wrapping, an inner wrapping and then everything inside is individually wrapped. Unless its absolutely necessary, excess packaging is wasteful and also adds to the weight of the product meaning you get less for your money.

    One thing to consider when boycotting cage eggs is products with eggs as an ingredient. While it is fairly easy to boycott cage eggs at an egg level, it's much harder at an ingredient level. Many products with eggs as an ingredient will use cage eggs.

    True. Are they any websites which promote products that use free range eggs in their ingredients? Surely we must be able help reduce cage hens somehow?

    Yep, it's one of the things that I struggle with.

    I only boycott cotton on for kids as their baby tee slogans leave a lot to be desired.

    I LOVE Gloria Jeans! Their vanilla chiller rocks.

    Can someone please explain why nestle? I do know that years ago they were pushing formula in developing countries where many had no access to clean water and poor sanitation, is that still the case?,
