Boycotting the Kochs

As I have written before, and read again in this AlterNet article, the billionaire Koch brothers are bankrolling (behind the scenes) the Tea Party movement. Well, they also back a front group, Americans for Prosperity and the anti-union movement in Wisconsin. There is a movement afoot to boycott every single product that Koch Industries is associated with. A caveat is that it may be impossible to boycott their energy interests, short of using only sustainable energy and/or going off-grid. That said, here is the list of products to boycott:

Angel Soft toilet paper

Brawny paper towels

Dixie plates, bowls, napkins and cups

Mardi Gras napkins and towels
