Is it a sin to buy products from a company you know supports immorality?

Hi! Do you think it is a sin to buy products from a company you know supports abortion, contraception, human embryo research, planned parenthood, and/or pornography? This would I think include companies such as Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, Disney, Viacom, eBay, and many many many maaaaaany others. Isn’t it only a sin if you buy products of or that directly support abortion, contraception, etc.? I don’t think it would be a sin to buy Johnson&Johnson shampoo or Q-tips for instance, or buy things off of eBay. Thank you for your help!
