Calling them Out: The World's 10 Worst Greenwashers | WebEcoist

Hi everyone. Hope some of you noticed that I was away for 2 weeks at the Autodesk annual conference and then took a slight detour with my wife and JR for a week in California. I was banned from blogging during vacation week so I'm feeling a little rusty. I think I have Blog Lag, the inability to post daily after a blog vacation. Maybe we'll just call it Blag. Blog Blag? Blug. That was bad. I'll be back to abnormal soon.

Fiji Water

The quality of most bottled water is no better than tap water, and more than 2 billion plastic bottles end up in the waste stream in America every year. But, that doesn’t stop bottlers like Fiji from claiming that bottled water can be green. The website FIJIGreen.com touts the company’s “progress”, buying carbon offsets and increasing recycling efforts. That’s all fine and good, but the simple fact of the matter is that Fiji water still travels halfway around the world. That’s a lot of wasted fossil fuels, and a lot of emissions.
