    Any brand that promotes greenwashing by the timber industry’s Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) is risking it’s brand’s reputation and all the hard work to meet sustainability goals.

    • Dave Shires

      Who are you referring to?

  • Gary

    I think @TerraPass is a worthy cause!

  • Taylor Hogan

    This is a horrific and offensive compilation. It’s as if the author searched “sustainability” and jotted down the first 25 results. A single mote of research will lead you to find that half of these brands compose the most prolific greenwashers in the world. This article is such a disappointment, and its publishing is in itself a crime against the environment.

      Oh calm down. At least back up your assertions. Anything specofic you object to?

  • Huey Yoong

    I agree. Especially when Walmart has a long standing reputation for being non-sustainable in their labour & supply chain practices! And how is AirBNB sustainable in their practices? It isn’t just the big names that deserve a mention – org like Better World Books is genuinely doing good sustainable work via recycling of books & raising literacy rates AND is on Twitter – they ain’t here. Not very representative.
