Greenwash Of The Week: Monsanto “Imagine”.

April 29, 2009

Yea, “imagine” is right…Monsanto seems to think they can pledge more sustainable agriculture and we won’t notice all the harm they have done to the worlds food supply. “That’s sustainable agriculture. And that’s what Monsanto seeds are all about.” Um, no – it’s not.


Talk about greenwashing. There is a great campaign called Millions Against Monsanto, which details a few important things that can highlight just how concerned they are with sustainability…

  • Monsanto’s Agent Orange: The Corporation Continues to Refuse Compensation to Veterans and Families for Exposure to the Toxic Chemical
  • Monsanto Hid PCB Pollution for Decades
  • Monsanto Brings Small Family Dairy to Court
  • Taxpayers Forced to Fund Monsanto’s Poisoning of Third World

Yep, sounds like they are concerned with the environment…

    It’s ironic that a company that produced Agent Orange (a defoliant)would like to portray itself as green.

    OMG. The scary thing is, these days I see so many “green” ads by gas and car companies that I’ve become desensitized –

    This is a very serious issue. They’re putting millions behind the co-opting of the term “sustainable agriculture”. Their paradigm- more GMOs, more pesticides, more $$ for them! Don’t let them take “sustainable agriculture!”
