Everyone that knows me, knows that I am FOR the planet. I'm doing my part for our Mother Earth. BUT. It makes me mad that all these corporations are making commercials that emphasize their wonderful, eco friendly, green, bio healthy ways when they haven't changed a single thing about how they do business!
For example, on cafemom this morning, I saw a "green" Coke ad. Coke? Green? Since when? For every Coke in someone's hand, they are healthier? I do think so! The last time I looked at the ingredients on a Coke, it said HEALTH WARNING on it!
Yesterday, an ad for Subaru, said it's now a zero landfill company. Really? Ask the garbage man if they do a weekly pick up there! There isn't a C02 molecule of truth in that one!
There's a plethora of events for this beautiful planet this month and it's all geared toward consumers. Buy this, buy that, and you'll be green. Here's a word to the wiser.. consuming more STUFF won't make you green! In fact, it's ANTI-green!
If you truly want to contribute to the continuation of the Circle Of Life, just educate yourself about products that YOU ALREADY USE and make a switch to simply choose better ones. Like garbage bags, they make biodegradable ones now. Shopping bags, get reusable ones and use them. Cleaning supplies can be non toxic or don't use them at all, use steamers! And the foods you eat, just stop eating fast food and buying packaged preserved food. And of course, get outside and take a walk!
I blog to share what I've learned about how to ECO-CONVERT your lifestyle without falling victim to corporate greenwashing.
It's LESS About Saving The Planet And MORE About Saving Your Life!
