Green Washing:

Greenwashing – What is it?

Greenwashing described by Wikipedia as “(a compound word modelled on “whitewash”), also called green sheen.

A form of advertising or marketing spin in which green PR and green marketing are deceptively used to persuade the public that an organisation’s products, aims, and policies are environmentally friendly”.

Greenwashing is nothing more than an illusion being projected and portrayed by some of the large corporate organisations who are paying no more than lip service to what they are allegedly doing to minimise their environmental impact. 

Though in all reality many of these large corporate Muti-nationals are not doing or changing a thing when it comes to minimising their environmental impact.

Most customers are savvy and are not easily conned or tricked by corporate green washing.

Savvy consumers are able to see through the green washing, the deception, PR lies, marketing spin and advertising hype.
