Environmentally friendly electric cars, sustainable produced food products, fair production processes: Hurray! If everything the corporations tell us is true, we can save the world through our purchasing decisions alone. Is it all a popular and dangerous lie? Are the industry’s “green products” nothing more than a sales strategy? In his new documentary film, Werner Boote talks to environmental expert Kathrin Hartmann about how we can protect ourselves. Boote and Hartmann banter, agree to disagree, and, ultimately, bring freshness to the debate.
