Koch Money is responsible for so many of the world’s woes.

I’ve easily found substitutes for all these products, I hope you will consider doing that, too.

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.

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.

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.

  • I can refuse to buy Brawny paper towels. I can also bypass such items as Dixie Cups, Angel Soft and Quilted Northern toilet paper, Stainmaster carpets, Vanity Fair and Mardis Gras napkins, and all Georgia PacifIc products.

  • Koch also owns Invista, Georgia-Pacific, Flint Hills Resources, Koch Pipeline, Koch Fertilizer, Koch Minerals and Matador Cattle Company.
