Knowing Where Your $$ Goes

KNOWING WHERE YOUR  $$ GOES

Boycotting: collective and organized ostracism applied in labor, economic, political, or social relations to protest and punish practices considered unfair. The tactic was popularized by Charles Stewart Parnell to protest high rents and land evictions in Ireland in 1880 by the estate manager Charles C. Boycott (b. 1832—d. 1897). Boycotts are principally used by labor organizations to win improved wages and working conditions or by consumers to pressure companies to change their hiring, labor, environmental, or investment practices.

Buycotting: the opposite of a “BOYcott”. As oppose to boycott, it is an active campaign to buy the products or services of a particular company or country. A buycott is supported by consumers who make a conscious effort to buy from companies whose environmental and social policies they support.

Corporate Social Responsibility: is the continuing commitment by business to contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the community and society at large."
