Greenwashing

Greenwashing is a cute little video of two puppets discussing the false representations big corporations make on ‘being green’. It humorously shows the sly techniques companies (such as BP) use to lull viewers into a sense of security – use their services or products and you are being environmentally friendly. This video is a great message to children about being discerning with the media information they receive. To be able to deconstruct the media messages and look for inconsistencies. It’s also a great example of how students can make their own simple and inexpensive yet pertinent videos and publish them.
