Meet The Never Greens

Being "green" is popular these days, but did you know that about 10% of the population don't care a whit about the environment?

Here's an interesting article by Jim Edwards for Brandweek about the "Never Greens":

The Never Greens don't buy green products, don't remember green advertising when they see it and are irritated by it even if they do, according to Mintel.

Never Greens also showed up in a survey by Shelton Group, an ad agency for BP Solar, the oil giant's renewable unit. About 26% of Americans are hardcore skeptics, according to Suzanne Shelton, the CEO of the Knoxville, Tenn., firm. They tend to be upper-income, middle-aged, conservative males, she said.

I'm with George Carlin on this one. The Earth created us because it couldn't make plastic for itself. Now that we have filled the Earth's plastic needs, the Earth no longer needs us.

I'm never green. I figure it's the upper-income yuppies who screwed up the planet in the first place. They get to fix it. Screw them.

It's easy to believe you don't effect the environment (an thus have no responsibility). And even easier to resent the lifestyles of those proclaiming your lifestyle "wrong".
