Everywhere you go you hear, “green”, “sustainable”, “eco-friendly” and numerous other terms that are usually just words used for marketing to the “green-minded” consumer.  With so much “green-washing” (using a term with no real proof or certification) consumers, and many professionals, find it confusing.
