REI only has 3% of it's member's voting - I wonder how that compares to Google's shareholders . . . not that it matter's when majority control of the company is still controlled by Brin and Page (as far as I know) . . .
On the charitable giving side, REI gave $4 million - compare that to Google's philanthropic arm that gave $33 million in advertising, but that's an in-kind donation for Google. I'm not sure how much they've give out through their other branches.
I've only shopped at REI once, and I'm not a member as the closest store is in Missoula.
While I don't think Google is evil, I think it's difficult to argue that REI is evil . . .
