What Is Greenwashing (and How Do I Spot It)?

At its simplest, greenwashing is the environmental equivalent of whitewashing. You know, when you put a thin veneer of white paint on something to make it appear white, but when the paint starts to chip or rub off, everyone can see it's not white

there are good points in this article. when using 3rd party certification, actually look at them. there are fakes that you have to watch for.

Greenwashing is a nasty and sneaky stratagem. We all need to be reminded of its existence and how to spot it.

Then there is "pinkwashing" involving the fight against breast cancer.
