It's important to know companies to avoid; where your purchase will be inadvertently supporting causes you don't believe in. And that's why we've made this list of companies with financial ties to Trump. You can send a powerful message by joining in the movement to boycott Trump and his supporters.
Can I really? Will anyone even notice? Yes! Our dollars are the world's most powerful force for change. Each day, American consumers spend more than $350 billion shopping. This equals the total funds raised by all U.S. charities in an entire year. If even a fraction of these dollars also reduced poverty, protected the environment, and created a better world, the impact would be enormous.
So where should you shop? Where can you buy products and feel confident that you're supporting brands that do good for people and the planet?
DoneGood works with brands that believe in equality, human rights, fair wages, and worker empowerment. We seek out businesses that believe in protecting wildlife and the environment; and use high-quality ingredients that don’t harm the planet or those who purchase them.
