Greenwashing

I found out about the Rainforest Action Network’s Greenwash of the Week videos through Feministing and wanted to share. Bria and Robin do a great job of highlighting environmental issues and corporate hypocrisy. Their newest video is about GM’s new ad campaign, which tries to portray the company as environmentally friendly and forward thinking when it is anything but.

I also like this video from a few weeks ago, in which Bria and Robin discuss the ridiculousness of marketing recycled Barbie accessories as socially conscious and environmentally friendly. They link issues like thoughtless consumption, environmental toxins, labor issues, and the oppression of women. You can watch all the videos here.
