More awards. Greenwash?

We have just been sent an invitation to apply for a Green Award. Of course, any one who reads my blog will have a fair idea of my reaction. Go to the website and see just how green the event itself is! http://www.greenawards.co.uk/awards_night/the_venue

So why on earth would any green organisation want to enter such a competition? And why would any seriously green organisation want to pay £75 for the privilege of entering in the first place, and then go to the expense of paying to go to the Dinner?

Answers on a postcard, or by email


  1. Ah, but you see, according to the Green Awards website, they are "Designed to raise awareness of Green issues" - which is of course completely different to BEING green. So that's ok then. Business as usual!

    Is is just a matter of gainig access to the high and mighty? Or the distinction of wearing the award seal on one's website?
