See Nestle’s Infamous Greenwashing Ad (Don’t Stare, It’s Not Polite)

The now-infamous Nestle greenwashing ad we’ve repeatedly referenced was put up for display at the Greenwise blog, and we’ve posted a slightly smaller version:

In an astonishing feat of marketing engineering, the ad represents Nestle’s bottled water as the “most environmentally responsible consumer product in the world,” putting Nestle firmly in the same hyper-marketed realm as “clean coal” and “earn millions from home over the Internet.”

Don’t look so astonished – this is the same “good corporate citizen” who sues small towns, negotiates contracts in secret, and loses very, very ungracefully. This isn’t much of a stretch.

  1. It’s interesting how they reference how they’ve reduced their packaging impact, as if that was done for the better good of the environment. The only reason they reduced the plastic, labels, & corrugate was solely for financial reasons. ie. it’s saving them money & that’s why they did it.

  2. I wish they were as willing to confront issues like the ongoing Fryeburg lawsuit and the damage in Napa as they are their “lighter” plastic bottle, better than 70% of which still end up in landfills.
