Re: [GreenYes] Eco-Barbie
Wasn't yesterday April Fool's Day?

Mattell announced over the weekend that it would be marketing a new 
Eco-Barbie in time for next Christmas.  Made entirely from recycled 
plastic, the new Barbie will include accessories like a patchouli 
neck bag, a Central-American-style jacket made from organic hemp, a 
bullhorn, and climbing gear for direct action make-believe.  The 
Eco-Barbie also will be able to recite such popular environmental 
slogans as "reduce, reuse, recycle" and "every day is Earth Day." 
Mattell is undecided about whether Eco-Barbie's dream car will be a 
super-efficient, gas-electric hybrid or a rusting VW van.  A Ken doll 
sporting long hair, a beard, and a fleece jacket is also in the works.
