Greenwashing and technology

By PSU EcoMerge Capstone - 12:31 PM

Has anyone discussed the technology Greenwashing? I found an article discussing the consumer electronics industry and their efforts to put a “green” label on their products in order to increase sales in the trendy “green” markets of today.
After discussing how the industry is putting a false “environmentally friendly” image on many of their new products, the author goes on to say that every consumer electronics product is bad for the environment. They all contain metal and toxic materials, and many have batteries and other acidic, poisonous components. The manufacturing, distribution, usage and disposal -- even recycling -- has some bad impact on the environment. Here's the link:
