The Dog & Lemon Guide says that electric cars aren’t as green as they’re painted.
That can be said of a lot of claims about things which are supposed to be better for the environment.
Many are just greenwash based on feel-good factors rather than fact.
It’s a bit like “lite” foods which may have less fat but use a lot more sugar than the supposedly less “lite” foods with which they’re competing.
The only way to counter spurious claims of healthier options, for the planet or people, is with proper analysis.
It’s time the people and companies making green claims were made to back them up with science.
We’ve got only one world and we all have a responsibility to be good stewards of it.
But if we let the greenwashers get away with their campaigns making the effort to be environmentally friendly might be making matters worse.
