“Environmentally Friendly”

What on EARTH does “Environmentally Friendly” mean? To me, it means that the “environmentally friendly” thing, has improved the quality of the environment in some way. Planting a tree is about as close as it comes as far as I’m concerned, but even then you needed irrigation, a truck to get the tree to the new site, etc.

What it does NOT mean to me is that it has harmed the environment fractionally less than the other way of doing things.

Anecdotally, I think it gets used the 2nd way a lot more often.

What do you think?

Next week… “Carbon Neutral”. And maybe, the week after that, “Zero Waste”.
