Flipping through Sunday’s newspaper, I came across the circular for Target and was looking through it when I came to this page:
As much as I hate chain stores, sometimes you have to shop at them to get some household supplies that local stores don’t have. And I do prefer Target over Wal-Mart by, oh, 101% so that is where we go when we need something. But coming across this ad made me wish I had another option when I need things that I seem to be only able to get at Target. Greenwashing products and services is becoming so popular that it is going to damage the environmental movement in that people will think they are doing the “right thing” just by buying a t-shirt like the one above.
One can only hope the people at Target learn to go “green” for real instead of pawning off non-organic, non-fair trade shirts that are probably made in China as “green”.
