It's been a little while since the Greenwash Brigade has piped up, but never fear, dear readers -- we're not going anywhere. Throughout the week, Greenwash Brigade bloggers will be posting year-end reflections on greenwashing in the marketplace in 2009. First up will be Heidi, posting a little later this afternoon. Later on this week you'll hear from Jim and Janne.

And in January, we'll have some surprise guest bloggers on to share their thoughts on the evolving story of greenwashing.

Thank you for your readership! And of course, if you have suggestions for what you'd like to read about on the blog, or who you'd like to read guest posts from, don't hesitate to drop us a line here.

And just in case you haven't caught it, be sure to check out Marketplace's Climate Race series and COP15 coverage.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
