Ethical Consumer magazine is encouraging people to take a holiday from Amazon this summer and sign up for Amazon Free August.
There is a long list of accusations against Amazon, from offering its services to fossil fuel giants to firing workers who try to unionise.
Below are a few more reasons to take a break from Amazon:
- Its flagrant tax avoidance
- It has a poor record on workers’ rights
- It threatens small independent businesses
- It profits from selling services to oil and gas companies
- It has failed to address its own environmental impacts properly
- It is repeatedly accused of racism in its technology
- It creates a hostile environment for unions
- Its violations of privacy rights
Take action and have a summer holiday from one of the world’s worst tax avoiders.
