During the American War on Viet Nam, we boycotted Dow Chemical, forcing it to change many of its ways of doing business. Like the present day Dow, Monsanto has products that are integrated into much that we use, but we can avoid some of those items with a conscious boycott.
Ethical Investing has posted a list of specific products to boycott, along with your avoidance of most processed foods since they contain genetically modified organisms.
And, check out these Boycott Monsanto products at Cafe Press.
