Benefake

RightOnTheWin

Created by: RightOnTheWin

Pronunciation: \ˈbe-nə-ˈfāk\

Sentence: Fredrick recently spent a fortune on remodeling his house to be more “green” for the environment. Everything went well, until the power reserving lamps he had bought, started to burn through the light bulbs like candy. Fredrick realized that most of the remodeling was done on impulse, and he didn’t take into consideration that these environmental friendly appliances could be benefake. Soon, his wife began to notice the problems around the house too; when she sat down to read a book, the newly changed light bulb blew. Fredrick’s wife warned him about overspending without researching first, before he began the remodeling. Fredrick refused to admit that she was right, and insisted that reusing blown bulbs would save power.

Etymology: Benefit (Something that promotes well-being) + fake (Something that is not what it purports to be)

Ecoillogy

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: eko ill lojee

Sentence: Captain Kirk announced that the Enterprise would now be using a new brand of toilet paper, one which was only one half ply and therefore reduced space detritus and saved money. Mr. Spock pondered this and tried out the new product for himself. It not only failed to do a thorough job, as it's limpness shredded easily, it would also not flush away for 3 or 4 flushes. Spock deduced that the new product failed to do the job satisfactorily, required more fluids to flush it and increased the ship's plumber's work four-fold. He told Kirk that his new product was based on ecoillogy. "Captain, this inferior product will force you to to go around Uranus in search of Klingons!"

Etymology: Ecology (The branch of biology concerned with the relations between organisms and their environment;the environment as it relates to living organisms) & Illogic (invalid or incorrect reasoning)

Greenfrauducts

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: green fraud ucts

Sentence: Cleaners and other products claiming to be eco-friendly because they are clear may actually be greenfrauducts. These fraudulently-eco-friendly products cost more, but may contribute the same chemicals to the water supply and earth as regular products. Another type of greenfrauduct marketed to unthinking consumers are the group of products that are already organic: such as “organic” fruits and vegetables - aren’t they organic just as they are? “Organic” needs definition as “grown without chemicals or pesticides” to avoid promotion of greenfrauducts.

Etymology: From green products and fraud. Greenfrauducts are a group of products that are marketed as earth-friendly but which are either not such or are already earth-friendly.
