search cancel – Saving the World Isn’t Easy

TrueGreenConfessions.comBeing green’s a bitch. Kermit was right.


Even though you drive a fancy Prius, you go for paper rather than plastic, you don’t buy paper towels, you recycle, you have a compost, and you’re the head of your neighborhood’s green committee, you’ve probably tossed garbage on some beach somewhere or maybe you work for an oil company. Worry no more, salvation, (of sorts) is at hand. TrueGreenConfessions is the eco equivalent of the confessional booth. Instead of the ‘bless me father for I have sinned’ spiel, you’re encouraged to rattle out your earth damaging peccadillos. The site is filled with the somewhat mundane, ‘I forgot to turn off the water while doing dishes,’ to the more bizarre, ‘I have fantasies of keying Hummers.’ Whatever your transgression, you’re encouraged to get it off your chest and let the world know. It’s completely anonymous of course. In Their Own Words

“You turn off the water while you brush your teeth, you’ve taken a prius for a test-drive, and you’ve installed at least one compact fluorescent light bulb in your house. But — you still take a 20 minute shower, refuse to give up those pretty Fiji water bottles and just can’t seem to put your newspapers in that recycling bin. In the immortal words of Kermit the Frog, it’s not easy being green (at least, it’s not easy all the time)! That’s why we’ve launched True Green Confessions – for those who are trying to make a difference to those who just don’t give a damn (about the planet).”

Why It Might Be A Killer

This is one of those sites that’s captivating in the way that tabloids are captivating. Not only is it loads of fun to read, it’s also a great way to alleviate your guilt or, if it’s more your style, to flaunt your egregious eco-sins. Entertaining.

Some Questions About

While the site is tons of fun, there isn’t much in the way to contribute to saving the planet. The site could implement discussion forums or some sort of social network to help assuage the guilt. Does this site merely aim to entertain?
