1. Select an ad (print or video) that highlights a product or service with a positive environmental impact or one that contains greenwashing. Share the link and explain the positive factors and/or the greenwashing. (Hint: sometimes even the good can be hyperbolic, resulting in some greenwashing.) In a minimum of 200 words, supported by textbook evidence and other research, explain if this ad is effective (even if somewhat misleading)? What could the company do to make the ad more accurate or credible?
2. In a minimum of 200 words, supported by textbook evidence and other research, investigate the economics of recycling in your community. How can local businesses improve the economic incentives for recycling? In some regions, businesses have allied to guarantee a market for recycled materials. Is this occurring in your community?
