Greetings from the Koch brothers

GreetingsFromTheKochBros.jpgBecause we know that the Koch brothers' holdings are so expansive, Big Apple Coffee Party has focused on their consumer products during the past several years. We have been urging consumers through our flyering to avoid adding to the Koch Empire by not purchasing Georgia Pacific and its subsidiaries' paper goods and party event supplies. 

Now, you can add another item to avoid dropping into your shopping basket at the drug store — American Greetings cards!  

Koch AG Investment LLC — a subsidiary of Koch Industries, the second-largest privately held company in the country with more than $100 billion in annual revenue — is infusing $240 million into American Greetings through a preferred stock investment.  This investment will add greeting cards to the mix as they participate in the Weiss family's effort to take the company private in a deal with a total value of $878 million.

So go ahead and exercise your consumer power. You will feel better, and maybe the person you are celebrating or trying to cheer up will feel better too.

Always liked Hallmark better anyway! The American Greetings also includes the Carlton brand along with Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears.
