3. Don't shop at Supermarkets
3rd November 2005 TV News programmes in the UK reported that several
dairy farmers were pouring their milk down the drain in protest at the
low prices they were being paid by supermarkets for their produce. This
was just one of many protests against the tyrannical manner in which
large supermarkets are driving farmers to bankruptcy and putting local
high street shops out of business, reducing the nutritional quality
of food and imposing degrading working practices and poor pay on staff.
4. Ethical investment
invest your money in stocks and shares, a bank, building society or
other investment body do you stop to consider how the money is then
used? Is it then reinvested to manufacture tobacco or alcohol, arms
or torture equipment, experimentation on animals, destruction of tropical
forests, or other activities which not accord with your values or principles?
Or are you just interested in the interest you gain on your investment?
