It is time to boycott Koch Industry's George Pacific
From Think Progress:

"Shortly after helping to elect Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI), Koch Industries opened a new lobbying office in Madison near the state capitol. However, little has been disclosed about the Koch lobbying agenda in Madison. The New York Times reported that Koch political operatives privately pressured Walker to crush public employee unions. But Walkers major payback to Koch relates to environmental deregulation.

ThinkProgress has learned that the Walker administration, along with state Supreme Court judge David Prosser, has quietly worked to allow Kochs many Georgia Pacific paper plants to pollute Wisconsin by pouring thousands of pounds of phosphorus into the water."

1. Many Georgia-Pacific products are union-made.
I generally do not boycott union-made products.
