The image of being green

They are about to open a new bank in my neighborhood. What I noticed on my way to work is the new bicycle rack at the main entrance. 
As you can tell, the bank with a green logo likely wants to be seen as "green". Not only they installed this bicycle rack for the most environmentally-friendly vehicles, but also they chose racks that resemble leaves. I guess they are triple-green this way (1. the logo, 2. the bike parking, 3. rack shape). 

It is very nice of them to think about us, bikers. I just wonder how much of this is a real care of cyclists and a true will of providing them basic facilities, and how much is only a creation of the image of being green.

  1. I've never seen these in my neck of the woods and we have several TD Banks in the city. I will have to keep my eyes open.
