How many people here (or that you know) stopped using Unilever products?

I just noticed at the Mikvah yesterday that I use Unilever shampoo and Unilever deodorant. Those guys are so dominant, no wonder the are called UNILEVER, they virtually act like a single lever to dominate our lives.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I stopped buying Ben & Jerry's (even though their non-dairy is better than most others) specifically but not Unilever in general.

Exactly my point.

There's a reason they call themselves UNILEVER!

Ironically, perhaps, it is similar to how impossible it is to truly boycott Israel.

We only use 3 or 4 of their brands and would not have difficulty avoiding them

The state of Florida ended its investments on Tuesday with Unilever, the parent company of Ben & Jerry’s, due to its boycott of Israel.

Florida Governor Ron Desantis ordered the State Board of Administration to add Unilever to the state’s list of scrutinized companies that boycott Israel three months ago. After the three-month period passed and the company’s stance on Israel remained unchanged, the state of Florida became legally obligated to refrain from investing or contracting with Unilever.

Only because they cancelled. Canceling the cancellers.

I guess it depends if you agree with their action or not?  :)

I would have thought so too. But when one develops a strong preference for a certain deodorant, shampoo, or other personal care items used daily (and possibly even laundry detergent), it's really hard to switch. This isn't like ice cream that is a luxury item not used daily.

Maybe something to do with https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=75747.msg1723045#msg1723045
Ah, that would be set up to fail as the generics are also owned by Kedem/Gefen.

Try switching to the store brand imitations. They shouldn't be too different, and they're cheaper.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Despite being labeled otherwise, some might be Unilever private-labeling.

at the very least, Unilever will be making less money on it.
