Vote for the Greenwash Gold 2012!

Which dodgy company most deserves the Greenwash Gold medal in 2012? Who is covering up the most environmental destruction and devastating the most communities while pretending to be a good corporate citizen by sponsoring the Olympic games?

With so many controversial companies providing sponsorship, it’s a pretty tough call to make, but we’ve shortlisted three and we’re enlisting your help to choose who gets the dishonour.

Watch the three short animations on Dow, BP and Rio Tinto and cast your vote as to who you think should receive the Greenwash Gold Medal.

Tell your friends on Facebook and Twitter who you voted for and why.

During the Olympics, we’ll announce the winner and award Gold, Silver and Bronze medals to the three companies.
