Did you know there's a Corporate Death Care industry?

That's right. And it seems that no aspect of our economy is immune to the temptation of greenwashing. Thankfully, there are more than 300 cemeteries and funeral homes across the country offering eco-friendly death care. The Green Burial Council is the standard-bearer for truth and transparency in death care.

Does the SFI EcoLabel Approve Forest Destruction?

I recently attended Eugene, Oregon's famous environmental law conference. In the entryway on the bottom floor of the building where the conference sessions were being held, there were a series of environmental organizational tables including TarSands Blockade, which is using non-violent direct action to stop the construction of KeyStone XL, and Forest Ethics, a national non-profit working to protect our forests. A giant banner hanging above the Forest Ethics table caught my eye. It said, "SFI: Certified Greenwash".

UPS established the Eco Responsible Packaging Program for customers who are committed to sustainable packaging. Companies participating in this program allow UPS to conduct an evaluation of packaging processes. These companies must meet criteria in three areas—damage prevention, right sizing, and materials content—to participate in the program. In order to participate in the Eco Responsible Packaging Program, the sustainability of shipment packaging processes will be evaluated in three areas: Damage prevention: Do the items arrive intact? Right sizing: Are the shipping containers no larger than necessary? Materials content: What is the environmental impact of the chosen materials? Note: Evaluation of product manufacturer's packaging isn't included as part of this program. UPS examines the transportation (secondary) packaging that you use for shipping.
