This lesson introduces students to “green businesses” and “Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)”. We break down the types of businesses and products to identify and categorize the service and ratings of how “green” they are. The lesson includes identifying potential greenwashing practices to attract consumers. Students are then encouraged to explore their neighborhood for local businesses and identify any green practices, and then collect and identify local green businesses, services, and products.
