In marketing, they say “sex sells”. Global warming now “climate change” is all about marketing and being “green”. Our carbonic hero Al Gore does scads of green marketing.
So, it was only a matter of time before sex, green, and global warming merged. It was inevitable really. Soon, we’ll probably see the “green issue” of Playboy.
Brace yourself for the next level in green marketing…

NBC in Los Angeles describes it as:
The goal is to use a little flesh to bring attention to a good cause — eco-friendly products. As part of the AngryGreenGirl.com launch, bikini models provided car washes Tuesday morning in Hollywood. There was a catch — you had to be driving a hybrid or electric vehicle.
The owner of this angry green hot marketing tool, Sofia Pernas says:
“Our whole motto is provocative with a purpose,” said Pernas, a 20-year-old actress who lives in Los Angeles. “We’re females exploiting what we’ve got to grab any sort of attention.”
“What better way to induce people to come than girls in bikinis washing their cars?” Pernas said.
Here’s one of the videos:
As I said, it is only a matter of time.
What is the message being marketed? I have no idea.
