Greenwashing

A slang term for a situation in which a company takes token steps to be more environmentally conscious, but advertises its steps in such a way as to make them appear more significant than they are. For example, if a company places recycling bins next to its trash cans but does nothing to curb its corporate jet use, it may greenwash its decisions by playing up the recycling bins.
