Oh, the Cognitive Dissonance

AT&T is about to roll out plant-based packaging, according to an article in Environmental Manager.  The plastic is composed of up to 30 percent sugarcane-based ethanol plastic.    


On the other hand, I receive nearly daily emails from CREDO, a cell phone company that markets to politically progressive cell phone users by donating part of the profits of the service to politically progressive causes.  Their sales pitch contrasts CREDO's use of profits against two of its competitors, AT&T and Verizon.  AT&T, CREDO tells us, gave $426,000 to House and Senate Tea Party Caucus members, and Verizon gave $48,000.

What's an EcoGirl to do?
