    I boycott TV (except for sport) - I find many Ads annoying and offensive and so many American sitcoms etc are seriously brain-frying! Ironically, of course, the beer Ads during the sport are the worst of the lot, even if they are funny!

    I buy Australian, where possible, and buy locally where possible, too, to make sure our friends and families stay in their jobs.

    I would love to boycott clothes etc made with slave labour but have to admit that I could never afford to buy new children's clothes if I did.

    I buy free range brands of eggs, bacon/ham and chicken. I boycott Gloria Jeans because of their association with Mercy Ministries (even if they claim they dont donate to it anymore). I boycott unsustainable sources of palm oil because of the destruction of rainforest and the killing of orang-utans.

    I only buy free range eggs.
    I boycott pets paradise and any other pet shop that keep puppies/kittens in tiny cubic boxes. I have only ever adopted pets from the RSPCA.

    Pet's Paradise and any of their linked chains. Pedigree dog food; most of their "adoption drive" profits go to the Lost Dog's Home, which euthanise almost every single incoming animal they get. Don Burke and any of his "designer dog" overpriced-mutt factory farm breeding programs.

    Label brands like Chanel and Gucci. Anything that tests on animals but still outright lies and says they don't...ahem ahem Body Shop.
    Really? I had no idea body shop test on animals.

    According to Peta The Body Shop do not test on animals but L'oreal who now own the body shop do ( plus Nestlé own 30% of L'oreal and they are even worse!)

    Well that is absolutely untrue. They are far more lenient than the RSPCA and will not euth without a good reason for doing so.
