Buy Outs (or maybe Sell Outs)

The Body Shop is being purchased by Loreal. Ack! Loreal still does animal testing because you can’t just stop that overnight you know. Slowly now, put the bunny down. He doesn’t like having make-up put in his eyes. I also suspect Fair Trade and natural ingredients are probably not part of the Loreal mission statement.

Tom’s of Maine, another company I really like is being bought out by Colgate-Palmolive. Same issues as above. Have you read the ingredients on the back of a Colgate toothpaste container?

All my good little companies are being eaten by conglomerates.

Stay strong Trader Joe’s and Patagonia!
