Is "original green" a colour which is more or less like the one of leaves?
that's a tough one, be back to this in a little while
if it's a color term, it's not one that is in any sort of common use, I know Kelly green, forest green, grass green, sea green, new grass green, British Racing Green, pea green, off the top of my head. And there's a bottled cleaning product called "Simple Green", I think, tho that doesn't sound quite right. But I've never heard of original green.
Yeah, it is Simple Green. And it is green.
"Original Green" is the title of a book of poetry by Patricia Carlin, and also the name adopted by an American environmental ("green") movement which believes in older approaches and aims to distance itself from more modern tendencies, which its adherents call "gizmo green".
