This proliferation of eco-themed magazine content is getting a bit ridiculous. Sure, if you're reading this page you might be thinking the pot's calling the kettle green, but that's not the case. We only SMS the kettle. Regardless, it's probably a good thing that everyone from Vanity Fair to Elle to Fortune to Town and Country to Genre is covering environmental content. The Week, for instance, did something fairly legit by publishing their green issue enitrely online. Still, when something becomes a fad, it inevitably burns out quickly. If it didn't we'd still be tacking our pants en route to Macarena dancing fondue Livestrong Beanie Baby parties.

By the by, CJR Daily also has a comprehensive rundown of the recent trend of media greenery.
