Issue: Greenwash

I find this one interesting, but don’t think we will pursue the Waste and Recycling topic this way. I just post it as an reference though.

More and more companies are marketing and PR their products as “eco-friendly” and “all-natural”. But according to TerraChoice Environmental, 98% of the “organic” products on the shelves of stores these days are committing at least one of The Seven Sins of Greenwashing Marketing (http://sinsofgreenwashing.org/). Greenwashing is a term describing the act of misleading consumers that a company’s policies or products (such as goods or services) are environmentally friendly.
