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.

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!)
