Dow LiveEarth Run For Water: Protesters Call Out Hypocrisy (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

As Earth Day draws near, we're seeing tons of companies try to get in the "green" bandwagon, with special products, giveaways and ad campaigns. For some companies like Dow Chemical with dubious environmental records, a little Earth Day sponsorship won't slip by unnoticed. Dow sponsored the Dow LiveEarth Run for Water, a particularly ironic move considering they now own the company that is responsible for the Bhopal toxic gas leak that 25 years ago which still hasn't been properly cleaned up, and continue to manufacture toxic chemicals. Watch as activists dressed as grim reapers and children from Kids For A Better Future call out Dow for their hypocrisy. The runners in the race look rather stunned that there are protesters at the starting line rather than cheering fans.
