Products produced by Koch Industries; Angel Soft, Brawny, Dixie plates, Quilted Northern, Zee napkin
Edited on Tue Feb-22-11 02:51 PM by Liberal_in_LA
While most of Koch Industries revolves around energy and gasincluding pipelines in Texas and Oklahoma, and refineries in Mississippiit also owns the Georgia-Pacific paper company, which makes a bevy of popular products, like the following:

Angel Soft toilet paper
Brawny paper towels
Dixie plates, bowls, napkins and cups
Mardi Gras napkins and towels
Quilted Northern toilet paper
Soft n Gentle toilet paper
Sparkle napkins
Vanity Fair napkins
Zee napkins

--------

The nations other largest paper company, Kimberly-Clark, which produces Kleenex, Kotex, Cottonelle, Depends and Scott paper towel, to name a few, is run by a man named Thomas Falk.

Falk has previously donated to John Cornyn, the Republican Senator who once likened same-sex marriage to tying the knot with a box turtle, regularly assails a womans right to choose and in 2005 voted against increased funding for armored vehicles for soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.

1. I'm so glad I don't use any of those products..
.. and never will for sure now. I can also easily avoid Kleenex, Cottonelle,
and Scott towels. Cornyn sucks.

11. I use Kleenex and two Koch products. Never again. And I will check labels
to avoid buying Koch brothers products. I will get the parent company of Kleenex and not buy any of their products. Thanks for the education.

7. Aww, shit -- pun intended.
I just bought some Angel Soft yesterday. I suppose I could save all the wads and mail them back to them.
