Greenwashing

By PSU EcoMerge Capstone - 8:17 PM

What is Greenwashing? Greenwashing is a term used to describe various companies and organizations that spend time and money advertising that they are eco-friendly, but are not actually doing anything, or very little to help the environment. An example of this is when vacationing and staying at a hotel, you re-use your sheets because the sign next to the bed tells you that you are helping the environment by doing so. In reality you are saving the hotel money! Another example of greenwashing are companies that advertise their products are organic but they also use chemically engineered foods.
