Lycra? I just happened upon this bit of info, which I certainly didn't know! Lycra is apparently made by a company called Koch Industries, which has a pretty lousy environmental track record: see here
Besides the environmental track record, the Koch brothers have spent billions lobbying against environmental legislation, indirectly influencing governmental policies through 'think tanks', lobbying for education reform that resulted in the privitisation of education, and lobbying for or funding organisations that lobby for laws that criminalise protesters, not just in the USA, but other countries in which their businesses operate.https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfr ... foundation

I would be very surprised to find that organisations such as Civitas, the New Schools Network, and the Policy Exchange do not receive significant donations from trusts or foundations linked to the Koch brothers. Since they do not reveal all of their donors, we will never know. And they don't often do such things directly. They will instead, give a foundation money on the condition that some amount of it is given anonymously to another foundation, trust, or think tank.
For example, through Donors Trust
, they support the American Friends of the Institute of Economic Affairs, for which the sole purpose is to give money to the Institute of Economics Affairs, which is a pro-Brexit free market think tank based in Westminster.https://iea.org.uk/about-the-brexit-unit-1/
