Environmentally friendly electric cars, sustainably produced food, fair production processes: Hooray! The big companies would have us believe that we can save the world just by buying the right stuff. But this is a widespread and dangerous lie. This documentary film offers an insight into greenwashing, and how consumers might protect themselves.

This film is presented in partnership with the Embassy of Austria in Singapore.
