20 New Rules. 20 Free Books. 20 Chances to Win: New Rule of Green Marketing Number 15.

Jacquie Ottman’s New Rule of Green Marketing Number 15:

 Green consumers trust brands that tell all.BP, ExxonMobil, and SIGG learned this lesson the hard way. It’s no longer enough to have a well-known name. Today’s brands become trusted by practicing “radical transparency,” disclosing the good - and the bad.

Patagonia’s Footprint Chronicles microsite lets visitors trace the environmental impacts of ten products and it not afraid to critique itself. For example, it is not afraid to reveal that is still uses (only) 36% virgin polyester in its Capilene Midweight Bottoms, needed to achieve desired performance and durability. No wonder it won a People’s Voice “Webby” award for the effort.
