So called Green movement

So now there are builders in the Houston area promoting ther 'green' projects. But I look at the brochures and apparently green means bamboo floors and energy star appliances. The bare minimum to be able to capitalize on the so-called 'green' trend. The trend that is really just hype, rock concerts, and very few real changes. Much like Earth Day 1990, which felt like things were really going to change, yet the only real result is that a fraction of people began to recycle only because some neighborhoods started offering curbside pickup.

Why don't they just tell people to turn things off? Turn the thermostat up and dress for your climate? Stop buying so much throwaway crap?
