Green Marketing Activity In this assignment, you will gain insight into how companies utilize green labeling to help consumers understand what the companies are doing to become better stewards of our environment. You will gain insight into how some companies practice “greenwashing” methods to deceive consumers with false claims of eliminating waste, saving energy, using environmentally friendly products, or using recycling products within their goods. It is always up to the consumer to be diligent when buying products for themselves or their families. Research three “green” labeling programs or products on the Internet. Then, consult the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) Environmental Claims: Summary of the Green Guides.
