There’s a nice little article in the JSOnline about “earth friendly” holiday gifts for kids. There are a lot of ideas in it from buying antiques, to giving immaterial items like museum memberships or art classes. But what’s interesting to me is that the article points out that many “green” products don’t proclaim their “greenness”. This goes back to my ideas on “green marketing” being, on occasion, a detriment. What’s most significant is that when a low-end (no offense, JSOnline) mainstream publication starts pointing things like this out to people, it improves people’s awareness as follows. One – it makes people who would be fearful of the “green” label feel as though they have company. Two – it makes people think to themselvelves that ecological consiousness is so mainstream that it’s matter of fact, which makes them far less likely to hesitate in making a “green” purchase.
