Boo Nestle - Make your Halloween Nestle-Free

Found on the Boo Nestle website

What is Boo Nestle?

Participation in a campaign as far-reaching as the Nestle Boycott can be overwhelming, especially for busy parents. But it's exactly because so many of the products we feed our families are made by Nestle that we can help protect vulnerable children and families around the world with our action.

So this Halloween take one concrete step: don't buy any Nestle candy for the ghouls and goblins knocking at your door.

* The above lists the relevant brands Nestle manufactures themselves but there are many other products and brands they are involved with distributing, licensing (such as Kit-Kat) or have partial ownership of in the US and globally so there may be other products in the Halloween aisle but at least this is a start.

If you’re in Canada, visit INFACT Canada for a list of their Canadian-distributed brands.

If you'd like to avoid ALL Nestle brands, visit Crunchy Domestic Goddess for a comprehensive list.
