Can you really boycott blood money?

28th September 2011

My colleague Nicholson commented on my post yesterday that he has not used Eveready batteries since the gas leak (good job Nick, I appreciate you for your sensibilities and compassion, which are becoming rare these days) which brings me to the question I asked earlier. Can you really boycott products of a specific company? I didn't buy these batteries, these came in the remote control of my TV. You may choose to not consume the products of a company directly but to avoid consumption indirectly is difficult and requires a lot of rigor. Do you think you can check the batteries for all electrical appliances you buy? May be you can, but can you ensure that your phone or iPad doesn't have blood metals from a war torn African country? I guess not.
