  1. This is a really great top ten list, I think it’s poor form for these corporations to be wolves in sheeps clothing. BP’s colors are green, and it’s a shame that they spin that to make them look good. Anyone can post their own to our site http://www.toptentopten.com/. The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list.

  2. You’ve got to be kidding! Now that I know what’s on this list the term “greenwashing” is so appropriate. I guess they have the biggest budgets to get people to believe whatever they think will make them more likeable.
