Nike is nowhere near the league of Nestle (and is irrelevant to this topic). Year after year, Nestle receives recognition as the most irresponsible corporation, and joins the likes of GM, ADM, Pfizer, Wal Mart, GE, Exxon-Mobil, Chevron-Texaco, Tyson Foods, and Kraft as the worst 10 corporations on the planet, based on overall social and environmental records.
There is a great website out there for more information: www.betterworldshopper.com. For hard copy, get a hold of the book The Better World Shopping Guide by Ellis Jones.
Cascade Locks' residents might want to consider the fact that Nestle is involved in a child slavery lawsuit, aggresively takes over family farms, is involved in union busting, depleting water tables, not to mention the shameful history of forcing unneeded and harmful baby formula on the poor. This is not an ethical, trustworthy or admirable company.
It appears that Nestle is a predator corporation, and has deemed Cascade Locks vulnerable in its need for revenue.
