Do you participate in either boycotting or buy-cotting?
Do you think either or both boycotting a business or buycotting is affective? Or do you think corporate bigwigs are disinterested in the opinion of the consumer market?
I think that ignoring may have been what most did up until videos etc started going viral. Now, I am not so sure. They probably have someone assigned to investigate things once a certain amount of opinions start pouring in. I think corporate big wigs are listening, how much is uncertain.
I avoid buying things that have ingredients hidden under catch-all or different names and simply avoid buying things that can cause me harm when there are safer alternatives available. However, I didn't know there was a name for this.
I think that a fairly large number of bigwigs are disinterested in the opinion of consumers and they underestimate the fact that many consumers are becoming well informed about some of their less than honest practices and choosing to spend their money elsewhere or not spend at all.
I support businesses which treat me well and avoid those which do not. If more people did this the "corporate bigwigs" will get the message. The individual has more power than he or she realizes.
Of course sometimes I have to stop buying certain products for mostly Ethical resoans, like boycotting Zionist products that use their revenue to supply killing people .
And it's not true co.s don't listen if we made them lose enough they will listen.
While I don't personally participate in boycotting/buy-cotting, I can see how enough people willing to do something about an issue could affect a business.
However, I could also see how certain boycotts could harm the consumer. For example, if I was going to fill up my gas tank one day-saw an email and then decided not to because someone wanted to harm the big wigs-I would wind up buying more gas when I finally did fill up again.
