Mind Blowing Chart of the Week! Little Green Companies Owned by Corporate Giants

Who knew that hippie crunchy Ben & Jerry’s was owned by the company that makes Axe Deodorant, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, SlimFast, and Lever2000?  I knew Ben & Jerry’s had been sold, but I didn’t realize Unilever had ultimately scooped them up (bad pun department, we need a cleanup in Aisle 2).  Here are some other companies that you may know and love, who owns them now, and some of the other brands made by the parent company.  I created this chart, feel free to suggest your own favorite natural brands and who owns them now.
