Quilted-Northern-Brawny-and-Dixie-cups-NO-MORE

I was just reading about those Koch Brothers and how they apparently paid bribes to get company contracts.  But what got me in this article, is that I've been supporting these evil Koch Brothers without knowing it.

The most visible part of Koch Industries is its consumer brands, including Lycra fiber and Stainmaster carpet. Georgia- Pacific LLC, which Koch owns, makes Dixie cups, Brawny paper towels and Quilted Northern bath tissue.

We recently had new carpet put in our home.  It was StainMaster.  Ugh!

I also always buy Quilted Northern.  I love soft toilet paper, but I cannot buy this knowing this is one of the Koch brothers consumer products.  ( Anyone know of a good replacement - I do like soft TP).

Apparently Brawny and Dixie cups are Koch Brother consumer products as well.

If we want to impact change, we need to boycott products like this.
