Corporate Guilt

In An Americano With an Extra Shot of Guilt, Please, Darren Barefoot observes the hypocrisy of a coffee shop, which he sums up nicely:

We’re entirely comfortable selling you an environmentally insensitive product, but want you to feel guilty about giving us your money. Plus, [as filmgoer juan points out on Flickr] we’ve been unwilling or unable to find a more sustainable source for cups.

It hints at the corporate strategies Naomi Klein outlined in her books – anything for the almighty buck.
