A couple months ago, I switched my electricity to Nstar's green program. My bill has been basically the same and I didn't think much about it. This weekend I got a flag and letter thanking me for going green. Gee, I wonder how many thank you for going green mailings they sent out? Think about it:
-mass mailing = additional fuel usage and more pollution.
- customer letters = additional paper usage and negative effect on forests
- lame "Gone Green" flags = wooden poles which require trees and unrecyclable plastic woven flags.
Man, Nstar better have invested a ton of money into carbon offsets for this little campaign!
