The big companies would have us believe that we can save the world just by buying the right stuff in our own homes. In this film, greenwashing experts explore how we can fight back against the dangerous lies of big business. Director Werner Boote not only demonstrates how major companies use huge advertising budgets to make their images “greener” so they can continue unabated destroying resources and the environment; he also makes the conscious point that sustainable climatic and environmental protection can only be achieved by political means and not just by more aware behavior on the part of the consumers.
