The Seven Sins of Greenwashing

The Seven Sins of Greenwashing – http://sinsofgreenwashing.org/findings/the-seven-sins/index.html

It can be so easy to see something on a shelf and buy it because it is “green”. We think that because a product says that it is environmentally friendly, that it actually is. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. There are some things that get labeled as “green” with little support for it to be named that. There are products that suffice a limited checklist but do not address larger impacts. There are products that are just the lesser of two evils. Read about these Seven Sins and see if there are any changes you can make when you buy products. Was there anything on the list that surprised you?
