Wasn't it Tom that was condemned to whitewashing a fence out in the hot sun all day? Now all of us are regularly condemned to greenwashing. I am putting together a lecture on Recycling and Trash Disposal and was perusing the EPA's website and came across this gem: what used to be known as the Office of Solid Waste has recently been renamed the Office of Resource Conservation and Recovery.
Do feel free to share your favorite greenwashing instance in the comments. By the way, I think the term greenwashing as it is popularly employed refers to a somewhat different phenomenon.
