Patrick McDermott, Stare Indecisis volunteer, talks to Calvin Sandborn about the ELC's research into Keurig's greenwashing advertising and the Competition Bureau's finding of false advertising resulting in an order for a $3 million dollar fine. Take a listen to see what Margaret Atwood had to do with it and to learn about further research happening to combat greenwashing.
