If your family is pooping in your yard and sleeping together in the same bed, you might be 'carborexic,' according to some ecology experts. These individuals call themselves the “Dark Greens” to signify their total and complete dedication to reducing their carbon footprint on the planet.

Others, however, call the Dark Greens carborexic and deem their behavior obsessive-compulsive and unhealthy.

Implications - Society is growing more and more concerned with the state of the planet and humanity's impact on it, and this is something that is increasingly evident throughout design, advertising, architecture and politics. As eco awareness continues to gain prominence, businesses can stay in favor with eco friendly products that show how they are on the same page as their customers and clients.
