I'm not trying to say that I want to kill the earth, or destroy the ozone, or leave a polluted mess for my grandkids to take care of, but I'm so tired of this "green" craze that's going on right now. I do think that in the future, green will be the only way, there won't be a differentiation between the green products and non-green products because they will all be environmentally friendly in some way or another... but right now, green is trendy. You can't go anywhere without having green shoved down your throat. There are so many things labeled "green" I wonder if it has become another subjective term like "low fat". I feel like you are not cool unless you buy "green", live "green", talk "green"... I feel guilty every time I go shopping if I don't buy the "green" product, like I'm going to be personally responsible for destroying the earth. They just promoted a news report about "green" clothing. Are you telling me I can't buy regular clothes anymore? I'm ready for green to no longer be trendy... for people to use green because there is no other option, that's just what you do, and it doesn't define your "cool" factor.
