Check out this very interesting video by the International Forum on Globalization. I learned of it from a Living In A Toxic World blog. The video points out the hypocrisy of many forms of "green consuming." I think its important that when we buy things, we should consider the environmental impact in our choices. But we shouldn't kid ourselves that we can simply buy our way to a green world. For example, the Prius may be a better choice in vehicles since it has a lower environmental impact than most cars, but it still has negative environmental impact because its a car that consumes oil.
