Say NO to ULINE



If you're like us, you spent several years supporting ULINE for your shipping and packing materials and office supplies. Huge variety, good prices, fast delivery, what wasn't to love? Then the giant catalogs started to show up once every few weeks. Then you started hearing maybe they were kind of Republican but it was OK cause just look at all those mailing envelopes! And the first aid kits and packing tape!

Then the company president Liz Uihlein (get it? They named the company after themselves) unnecessarily published a letter jam-packed with racism, veiled racism, and varying degrees of subtle racism. Then we found out her husband, Richard Uihlein donated ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS to a group trying to help get accused pedophile and devout bigot Roy Moore elected to Senate. WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?

So now you're stuck, wondering where the hell you're going to find all the great packing, shipping, and office supplies your business depends on without having to send money to a company who is afraid of brown people and gay people, but thinks pedophiles are A-OK??? Well, here is a thorough list of great alternatives to ULINE! Please support these companies, please share this list, and please send us any other suggestions to add to it!
