Campaigners are asking shoppers to avoid shopping at Amazon during December, because “Christmas is Amazon’s busiest time of year – and it’s also our best chance to disrupt their business”.

“They don’t pay their workers a living wage,” claim Amazon Anonymous in their appeal to join the Amazon-free challenge, which launched on Tuesday. “They dodge their tax. They take money away from our local shops. So this year, let’s take our money away from them.”

What’s not to love about Amazon? It’s convenient and can be cheaper, but I think they may have a point…

“Last Christmas, 65,000 people signed a petition calling on Amazon to pay its workers a living wage, and we’ll be asking all of those people to put their money where their mouth is and join the Amazon-free Challenge.”

I’m joining campaigners to try and send a strong message to Amazon about its social responsibility.
