The Frugal Hostess on Greenwashing

You might remember The Frugal Hostess from her guest posts here. Today she’s got a great one on her site that you should go check out.

I love it for this paragraph, that sums up perfectly my feeling about lots of “green” products:

There are lots of products that started out as a bad idea, got green-washed, and remain a less-poisonous version of a still bad idea.  Most organic junk food fits into this category.  Sure, there aren’t any chemicals in that highly processed corn-cookie, but that doesn’t mean you should be eating organic high fructose corn syrup and free-range trans fat.

Go read the rest of it to see if she might have found a product that really is a greener alternative.
