Is "going green" wicked?
Last night I saw the wonderful musical "Wicked" at the Performing Art Center in Durham, NC (dpac). By the way, if you've not experienced it, I strongly recommend it. It is a cauldron full of delicious song, dance and amazing imagery to feast upon.
You ask, what does seeing a musical have to do with "going green"? Well, Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, made a comment about "going green". Of course, she was referring to her skin color (it got a big laugh). Nevertheless, it made me wonder just how over-used the ecological word "green" has become. We are now seeing it in everything...from house and auto paint to lip stick...(well, maybe not lipstick...unless you count "no animal testing" in which I'm a strong supporter). Yes "greening" is a good thing. But are companies and industries really embracing it or is "green" merely the "in" color this season?
