Due to the fact that there appears to be no federal, national, or international agreed upon meaning for the terms described below, we are relying on the definitions contained in the current online version of Wikipedia.
* “Greenwash [Greenwashing] (a portmanteau of green and whitewash) is a term used to describe the perception of consumers that they are being misled by a company regarding the environmental practices of the company or the environmental benefits of a product or service. It is a deceptive use of green PR or green marketing. The term green sheen has similarly been used to describe organizations which attempt to appear that they are adopting practices beneficial to the environment.”
**  “[Green,] Environmentally friendly, eco-friendly, and nature friendly are synonyms used to refer to goods and services considered to inflict minimal harm on the environment…”
