Entrepreneurs of London invited our founder Colleen G McCauley to present Green Marketing ~ Sins & Strategies during their lunch meeting at Crossings Grill & Pub today.

Participants were asked to name a green product or service they currently used or have used, and explain why to kick-off the discussion. The growth of green marketing (and greenwashing) was demonstrated through the extensive range of eco-labels being tracked by EcoLabel Index, former Ecollabelling.org.

Let’s find a certified green restaurant to have organic green tea that’s fair trade certified in an eco-glass mug then wash our hands in earth soap and dry them with compostable towels.

Finally, some steps and strategies were outlined for business communications. All were encouraged to question all marketing claims, whether green or not.
