ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE END OF GREENWASHING
ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE END OF GREENWASHING: THE FTC HAS AGREED TO REVIEW THE GREEN GUIDES
After almost a year of phone calls, emails, and panel discussions with our partners @PoliticallyInFashion, and after writing a letter to the FTC which garnered signatures from over 40 major brands, NGO’s, and influencer-activists (AMENDI – LETTER TO THE FTC – UPDATE THE GREEN GUIDES –) The FTC has finally agreed to review the Green Guides in 2022!
This is huge news because it means that the FTC can now update the Guides’ regulations to effectively curb harmful greenwashing. But, this is just the beginning. Now that we know the review will happen it’s even more important for consumer activists, NGO’s, and committed brands to voice their opinions to the FTC on what needs to be in the Guides to be genuinely effective. It can be easy for big money brands to overwhelm and manipulate this conversation, but if everyone concerned steps in then we can make a huge difference.
