The Green Life: "Eco-Chic Debunked"?

"Eco-Chic Debunked"?

Sure, juicy cover lines like that sell magazines. But New York's June 18 story on "hacking through the biodegradable, zero-Nymag_covercarbon, ecochic overhype" actually only rains on the parade of four of the twelve products (including a body squeegee and a hand-crank washing machine) they assess. The rest, from poop stationery to soy clothing, get at least grudging--if not glowing--praise from the amusingly snarky commentators. Their back-and-forth banter is well worth a read.

What ecofriendly products or services do you think are impractical, overhyped or just plain lame?
