The Irregular view of all things 'green'

One of my Irregular colleagues received a pitch from GreenJobInterview.com describing a new video service but using the 'green' moniker as a way of injecting novelty. He wasn't impressed. The first remark:

That noise in the background was me throwing up.  A job board now positioning themselves as “green?”

The second from another colleague was altogether more illuminating:

Green hiring practices are nothing new. We ask all of our job candidates to walk to our campus for their interviews. When they arrive, instead of offering them bottled water we provide them with a locally-grown bamboo drinking straw and directions to our outdoor rainwater reclamation pond. Finally, we provide composting toilets for all hiring managers and job seekers, outfitted with 100% post-consumer recycled toilet paper made from the printed resumes of previous applicants.

Video schmideo.

As you might imagine, we're not entirely enamored of many things we see in this ever-greening world.  As we say to all new Irregulars: "We may not always be nice, we may not always agree, but we guarantee that you'll always leave smarter than when you came." Just one more example of Enterprise Irregular advanced thinking.
