It's not enough to be green

An interesting article in Forbes on some sustainable clothing lines and how they've done. One is thriving because of marketing efforts and one has gone down the tubes with the stagnant economy.

Also sort of related, I just saw on Mulch Ado About Nothing that an economist predicts that oil prices will come down in early 2009. It should be interesting to see what happens to the sustainability movement once the economy is stronger. Will consumers go green with their wallets?

... or will lower gas prices actually decrease some of the incentive for consumers to look for sustainable options? I'm not sure.
