Here’s my PRINTABLE “BOYCOTT KOCH BROTHERS FLYER” with tear-off strips.  Just cut the bottom section along the lines to create the strips.
This is the newly updated version.  I added pics of Angel Soft, Mardi Gras, Zee, and Soft ‘n Gentle.
I use Viva or Bounty Paper Towels instead of Brawny Paper Towels, and also instead of using napkins.  And for Toilet Paper I use Charmin Ultra-Soft instead of Quilted Northern or Angel Soft.  I’ve tried the Health Food brands of Toilet Paper and Paper Towels, and I admit, I do have guilt for not being that much of a greenie when it comes to things like that, but truthfully, I haven’t found a soft brand of TP yet…let me know if you know of a soft brand that is better for the environment.
I had this bright idea today when I was shopping at “The Palace” our local Mom and Pop grocery store (I live in a small town in the country).  I found the manager and I told him that I had noticed that he carried a lot of Koch Brothers Paper Products.  He didn’t know what I meant…I explained how the Kochs fund the Tea Party, still no bells went off…I asked if he knew about the 1% and the 99%…LIGHT BULB MOMENT!  YES!!  Communication Established!! (Yay, Occupy)…I asked if he could order different brands, that didn’t support the Koch Brothers…and explained how he could substitute Viva or Bounty for Brawny, and Charmin Ultrasoft for the Toilet Paper Brands…I told him that he could advertise this point to his customers, and they would probably be very supportive.  He got what I was talking about.  He liked the idea, but said it would depend on whether his distributor stocked the alternatives…but then he had this bright idea himself, and suggested that perhaps he could get his distributor to change brands, too!
Yay!  I got happy.  I told him I’d come back with a flyer of the different products.
I got so turned on by the idea of having the list of Koch Products all in one place (besides inside my head), that I made a button, too!  Picture coming soon…
I hope you’ll print out the flyer and post it on bulletin boards where you live.

f="http://leftish.tumblr.com/post/20542190875/okay-so-we-need-to-boycott-koch-brothers">Okay, so we need to Boycott Koch Brothers products…right?

They are responsible for funding the Tea Party, and contributing to GOP candidates, in a concerted effort to defeat Democrats, and influence both State and Federal legislatures.

We need to do what we can to not be helping those who act against our best interests.  One way to do that is to withdraw our money from their coffers.

How to accomplish this?  First off, we need to KNOW which products the Koch Brothers manufacture, so we can Boycott them.

So, first starters, how many Koch Brothers products can you name?

I came up with a good idea today for a possible nationwide EASTER ACTION:
BOYCOTT KOCH BROTHERS PRODUCTS for Easter this year.
That includes these items for your party:
Dixie Cups
Vanity Fair Paper Plates
Mardi Gras Napkins
Brawny Paper Towels
Quilted Northern Toilet Paper

And of course, if you are driving, don’t buy Koch Brothers Gas Products:
Union Gas
Conoco
Union76
If everyone chose alternate brands of these items nationwide, it might actually make people take notice, at least.  I doubt it would affect Koch’s bottom line very much, but who knows, right?  It could create a stir.

It’s David Koch’s birthday!

Here’s a flyer listing industrial and household Koch Products to boycott!
Let’s give him a GREAT birthday, by not buying any of these products!
BTW, Koch owns both Brawny and Angel Soft…I use Viva or Bounty for Paper Towels and Charmin Toilet Paper (owned by Procter & Gamble), myself…if you use either Brawny or Angel Soft, please consider switching to non-Koch brands.

I like to post this every once in a while.  It’s a printable flyer that you can put up locally…
The only way to defeat the 1% is to take away the only thing that they care about - profits.
AVOID ALL KOCH BROTHERS PRODUCTS as much as you can.  I’ve found other alternatives, and it wasn’t even that hard.
KOCH funds Radical Right Wing candidates.  I don’t want to help THAT!

“A few years back, probably no one in America knew who the Koch Brothers were, much less how to pronounce their name.  But now, Charles and David Koch have replaced Dick Cheney as the chief villains for many.
For years they have been using their vast fortune, estimated at a combined $44 Billion to help fund Conservative think tanks and politicians.
They have been a primary benefactor for the Tea Party movement, and now they are vowing to spend $88 million going in to the 2012 elections.
They are the very symbol of the unholy alliance between business and state that plagues this country.”

[NOTE* from Leftish: This is a printable flyer.  Click on it to see it full size, or adjust your printer Page Set Up to fit an 8.5” x 11” page.  Just slit the bottom, to create the tabs, and post it on your local bulletin board.  Send in a picture of the posted flyer “in use”, and I’ll send you a “Boycott Koch” button.  Make it a clever or interesting photo and I’ll send you two or three buttons!  Let’s get this going!]

BOYCOTT KOCH INDUSTRIES Printable Flyer with pull-off tabs.  Feel free to print out multiple copies of this flyer.  Be sure to fold the lower part back and forth a few times along the black line to “soften” up the fold, then slit the bottom section along the lines, and post the flyers on your local Bulletin Boards.
