Greenwashing is everywhere these days. Even Clorox has a line of green cleaners out there. What to do? For household cleaning vinegar and baking soda with a lot of elbow grease. If it won't rot it doesn't come home is what I think as much as possible for food but I probably spend more time reading labels than anything else in the store. What about other purchases that may have new products or something that you are switching to green?
Ecologo has come up with the "Six Sins of Greenwashing" to help in making purchasing decisions. They are listed as follows:
- The Hidden Trade Off
- No Proof
- Lesser of Two Evils
Later this week I'll be making some posts and presenting some info found at the Green Living Show in Toronto on the weekend.
