I always liked the descriptive verdant.

do you agree, its hard to find possitive associations for green?

I have some recollection of an old Irish (I think) tradition that unchristened babies must never wear anything green as it is the colour of the fairies. Babies wearing it may be substituted with changelings.

I know, it's not really a positive association - unless you dislike your parents so much you'd rather be a changeling!

While here, the Queen of the South Seas is supposed to be very partial to young men wearing green (aren't we all?), who are likely to be swept away to her underwater abode if they venture into the waves in her colour.

I admit to being colour blind - but in my book green means ....... GO ....... and that's pretty positive.

Helen, I'm surprised to hear you ask this question, given where you work. Corporations who want to come across as having a positive environmental record, without necessarily doing anything to benefit or refrain from harming the environment, engage in greenwashing - clearly green's got a positive association in this case.

And I refuse to believe that belM's comment about the butter wasn't a set-up - it was just too good to be true. And messy

There are lots of wonderful associations with green, including the environmentally sound, the new life of spring, the color of US dollars, and my beloved Spartans.

GO GREEN!
