I'm shocked. You mean it's so easy to get a coveted greenie eco-label to stick on your products that there doesn't even need to be a product? But that would mean people can jump on the band wagon and sell any old greenwashed shite.
Maria Vargas, an official with the Environmental Protection Agency, which runs the program with the Energy Department, said the approvals did not pose a problem for consumers because the products never existed.
Someone's missing the point that the non-existent products simply demonstrate the feasibility of getting worthless greenwashed tat approved. This is like observing that the bank doesn't lock its doors at night only to hear the manager deny it's an issue since no money had actually been stolen. How the fuck they can have someone who can't wrap their head round that answering questions about the issue? As has been said so often by so many with eco-wibblism the appearance of being green is all important while achieving anything meaningful is entirely optional.

Incidentally, how was Dirt Hour for you?
