Save. Spend. Splurge.

Who owns which companies (conglomerates and businesses)

This is by no means an exhaustive list and things may have happened since I saved this list (companies were bought out, etc) but I hope it helps you weed out the companies that do not align with your values. I have placed a note beside the ones I am boycotting.

Honestly, it is pretty much the entire list, but there are some that are not bad. You only need one brand / product to switch to, right?

So who can you buy?

Here is a list I update with brands I am replacing my routine with. I update it when I can.
