Six Sins of Greenwashing

Thanks so much to Gloria for sharing this excellent site with us about the “Six Sins of Greenwashing”.  I recommend that you visit this site and read their research, they have compiled a document that explains the 6 sins they found from their research.  Terra Choice Environmental Marketing conducted a study where they reviewed over a 1,000 products in leading stores for their green claims. 

The “6 Sins of Greenwashing” include:

1. Sin of Hidden Trade-Off

2. Sin of No Proof

3. Sin of Vagueness

4. Sin of Irrelevance

5. Sin of Fibbing

6. Sin of Lesser of Two Evils
