Well I work in the Steel Industry.Even though we're classed as a "Green Steel" company 90% of the Steel we make goes to either Oil and Gas,Aerospace or Automotive Industries.In fact every single Plane/Helicopter flying today is made up of parts with Steel from us.So it would be hypocritical of me to get on my high horse about it.
Before our company was sold we were owned by Tata.Tata also own Tetley Tea.It was once pointed out to me(by a checkout worker) that by drinking Tetley Tea I was helping supply Arms to Terrorists.The young lady was quite shocked when I told her I also worked for Tata and really could not care less
We all directly or indirectly fund "unethical" companies.....I'm just realistic about it
I agree, we do, no matter how much we try. However, whilst accepting that, having some sort of critical view of whom we do business with is somewhat different to the attitude which you espoused, where it doesn't matter, "...it's just a name on a shirt", I'd suggest.
