Greenwashing

This video presents a simple message in a very vibrant way: we shouldn’t believe everything we read/see/hear online. The clip sends this message by referring to greenwashing – or the practice of companies purporting to be environmentally sound/friendly when there may not necessarily be anything green about them. Gone are the days when students could access information from golden bound encyclopaedia brittanicas! As teachers, we need to ensure that our students are aware of the integrity of the information they are accessing online and teach them skills to check whether they are getting their data from a credible source.
