Renewable Girls.. ew.

26 Oct

This may look like a parody but – boo hoo – it isn’t. These pictures are from the Renewables Girls 2011 calendar. I don’t really know what to say. Ms Magazine thankfully has some sensible words on the subject – “Part of a tacky trend of ecosexism in advertising for “sustainable” products, this calendar comes on the heels of PETA’s infamous sexy animal rights series and Yoga Journal’s seemingly exclusive preference for young/white/thin/topless models.”

The captions on the website are the real clincher. The first image reads: “When her husband is away on business, Cynthia waits patiently by her solar-powered phone.” And below the second image: “Megan is Bananas for Panels!”

Sheesh.
