Why "light shades of green"? You hear it all the time, "go green". Product packaging often promises "green" which is supposed to mean buy it, this is good. Many times this is true, however, as we often see things listed "organic", "natural" and "heart healthy" when it's not necessarily so, the term "green" can be misused as well. People often associate going green with spending big bucks and inconvenient changes.
