7 Crappy Products, Courtesy of the Green Movement
[link to pjmedia.com]

In the good old days, consumers got what they wanted. Supply and demand, not causes or ideology, governed product design and manufacturing. Thatís why we have great American icons like the 1969 Chevy Camaro, the charcoal-burning Weber grill, and DDT.

But things have changed. The Green Movementís worship of scarcity has changed the consumer landscape for the worse. Instead of big, powerful, and, most importantly, effective products, in 2012 consumers must suffer with pansy products. Sure, they are designed to save energy and make you feel good. But they just donít work as well as the old, and usually cheaper, versions.

Below are seven crappy products we must endure, courtesy of the Green Movement.

6. Highly Collapsible Water Bottle

GRRRRRR!!!!! I stopped buying them because when you try to take a drink, just as it says in the above mentioned article, it crushes in your hand like the Hulk would smash a VW Beetle. I always end up squirting water all over myself.

Those lightbulbs do suck. Glad I stocked up on incandescents. And the energy efficient dishwashers are a joke. A friend got one and you can run it 3 cycles and the dishes still look like shit. I'm going to keep my energy sucking water wasting dishwasher for as long as possible. Just replaced the control panel, should be good to go.
