One product that should certainly be boycotted is bottled water. I used to work at a firm that provided water in glass bottles free for staff. We were on the third floor with no lift, the servicepersons had to heave the crates on sack trucks up the stairs and the empties down again, heavy glass bottles weigh almost as much empty. They were a couple of gents 50+, wonder if their health suffered
I always drank tap water, can't remember being challenged about it, what arguments could I have used?
Sounds like the kind of exercise that might well have done them the world of good if they did it often enough. I agree though that transporting bottles of water about is usually daft, especially now we have that miracle of engineering, the pipe.
