    Very true with cars they 'cost' allot to produce although newer cars do help to improve general air quality in busy areas.

    Thin clients seem to be a good move for saving power and lower production costs as well.

    We're going thin client in a few suites, and the servers are running the new greener Intel chips (forgotten model number), that's about as good as we'll get for a while!

    As for eco cars, aren't the Prius batteries made in a factory in an area with the highest pollution in the world and transported long distances? - not very eco after all!!

    Yes, you would drive yourself mad trying to factor in everything!
    I mean, those solar cells sound great -but they use minerals that are in fairly short supply, so: would Coop have been better to send them out to Africa where they:
    a, would benefit from it and can't afford cleaner energy sources
    and
    b, would actually be in use all year round!

    Wikipedia says:
    Greenwash (a portmanteau of green and whitewash) is a term that is used to describe the act of misleading consumers regarding the environmental practices of a company or the environmental benefits of a product or service. The term Green sheen has similarly been used to describe organizations which attempt to appear that they are adopting practices beneficial to the environment
