NW Natural greenwashed at Muddy Boot Fest

greenwash action at Muddy Boot
Around 4pm Saturday a young man with a portable megaphone walked toward the NW Natural Gas booth at the Muddy Boot Festival informing the crowd of what he stated were hypocrisies in the company's promotions of "green" energy. At a pre-arranged signal, several citizens approached the booth from the other direction and doused the table and literature inside the booth with buckets of green soapy water while yelling "Greenwash!" I believe they all then left the property without being apprehended.
