Bikini girls wash solar panels at American Apparel in Downtown L.A.


Thanks for Mark Lacter for pointing me to this one. Controversial L.A.-based clothing purveyor American Apparel powers at least some of its operations with solar panels. Those panels need washing, I guess. So the company gets young folks in bikinis to do the washing. Mostly ladies, but also some fellas.

NSFW? Not really. But watch at your own risk!

Now that's some real greenwashing! Yuck, yuck, yuck...
