A recent series of investigative reports by the good folks at the Greenwashing Blog has uncovered a potentially massive scam to literally SELL “sustainable food establishment” certifications to any restaurant willing to pay for them. The investigation diggs deep into the full extent of the corruption that can occur when there is no independent monitoring into programs that claim “sustainable” or “green” certification. It also proves the lows the National Restaurant Association is willing to go. In case anyone was wondering what their position is on environmental issues, they oppose any and all “mandates”. In other words, the NRA would love nothing more than a restaurant industry free of any laws. No minimum wage, no overtime, no sick days and of course no trans-fat or other health and safety laws for workers of consumers.
Thanks to Greenwashing for exposing the true nature of the NRA!
