carbon footprint labelling

aeroplane_resized_250_tcm12-1912932This short article on the Drapers website drew my attention to the launch of carbon footprint labels for consumables like food and clothing.

A quick seach reveals more articles: carbon foot print labelling in Japan, on Walkers crisps, and by Tesco. The Carbon Trust (http://www.carbon-label.com) tries to explain further, and you can calculate your carbon footprint. (http://actonco2.direct.gov.uk/index.html)
