Why would a liberal support Amway? Reason #1 - the environment

In general, liberals tend to be far more environmentally conscious than conservatives. Now, obviously this is a generalization but I think if you polled most environmental-focussed organizations in the US, more of them would be Democrats than Republicans.

So there's a funny thing about Amway, owned by well known conservatives and Republican supporters, the DeVos and Van Andel families. Heck, Dick DeVos even ran as the Republic candidate for Governor in Michigan. Did you know -
And this list of environmental projects and awards goes on ... and on ... and on ....

Amway was a corporate leader in environmental issues decades before it become fashionable and certainly long before it become profitable.

If you support the environment, you could certainly do a lot worse than support Amway. This liberal is proud to.
