Here is where we’re at, America. In Canada, a political party Photoshopped an image of its candidate in order to look more eco-friendly. Canada’s Green Party—which holds just two seats but is polling at around 10 percent nationally—admitted to Photoshopping a compostable disposable cup out of a photo of party leader Elizabeth May ahead of next month’s election, replacing it with a reusable version and metal straw. Good old-fashioned below-the-belt Canadian politics!

Meanwhile, in America, a political party is taking the opposite, eco-obnoxious approach.
