If you haven't heard the term greenwashing yet, you're in for a big surprise. The term greenwashing refers to a manufacturer or service provider who claims their product or service is green, but once you look behind the scenes, it's anything but. The sad reality is millions of people across the globe are being duped into spending extra money on "green" products that aren't green at all.
Let's take a look at a handful of industries that have been caught red-handed.
You've undoubtedly seen food labels claiming the products inside are "all-natural" and "made with natural ingredients." This may have led you to believe you were actually buying foods that were completely natural and were good for you. You may have even thought you were purchasing organic foods made from ingredients that hadn't been treated with chemicals or genetically modified.
The reality is nothing could be further from the truth.
