Greener Postures: Hacking through Ecochic Overhype


New York Magazine does a hilarious takedown of green products, "To some, the "green consumer" is an oxymoron (they might even drop the "oxy"). The real solution, they say, is to consume less. While there's some truth to this, a Walden-or-bust approach seems ill-suited to our present culture. Greed and vanity are alive and well; if they can be enlisted in the fight to save the planet, who are we to turn them away?"

They look at oil drum coffee tables, hand cranked washing machines, poop stationery, solar courier bags, soy clothing, body squeegies, green weddings, the stuff that TreeHugger is made of, trashing much of it. Written with humor and style at ::New York Magazine via ::Apartment Therapy
