Clearly Green is composed of a group of students at the University of Windsor who are shining the light on the danger of greenwashing by companies who brand products as environmentally friendly, when in reality, they are not. The consumer is often confused and manipulated into purchasing products that are more “marketing” than “substance”. This “green sheen” PR spin must cease.
Truly green products can be an investment. This investment, however, should not be a barrier to improving our environment and our future. We are appealing to the Canadian Ministry; Canada Parliament to help subsidize the purchase of truly green products, including wind turbines, solar panels, and other environmentally friendly products to reduce our reliance on conventional and/or fossil energy sources. By doing so, the prices of these products will lower to levels attractive to the mass market. Significant change is possible if enough people can afford to purchase and install these products.
We are united in our desire to make Ontario a more sustainable and environmentally conscious community.
