The Company Contrast – Shell

Each week 2ndVote takes a look at a popular company that scores poorly on the 2ndVote scoring system, and then provides some better alternatives for you to easily align your shopping dollars with your values. This series is called The Company Contrast, and the company we will be focusing on this week is Shell (2-  lean liberal).

Shell, a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell, is a global group of energy and petrochemical companies.  It is also the parent company of the following brands: Pennzoil, BG Group, Vivo Energy, and more. Even though Shell is a popular gas station, filling up your gas tank or purchasing snacks there undermines your values based on their continuous support of a leftist agenda.

Shell scores a 2 on 2ndVote’s scoring system because of its corporate sponsorship of the National Urban League, which supports same-sex marriage and sanctuary cities. Shell also contributes to different organizations that are pro-abortion. To see all of the reasons Shell scores so poorly, you can click on their company page here.

Fortunately, when you need to visit a gas station, but don’t want to sacrifice your conservative views, there are better alternatives out there. Speedway (3- neutral) is a great place to visit without sacrificing your values. This company’s neutral stance on issues and commitment to its customers is why 2ndVote has deemed it a better alternative to Shell.
