According to this article, a top Kew Gardens scientist believes food packaging should include a label showing its carbon footprint - helping shed light on the supply chain of our food.
An example he gives is the impact of soya and beef products;
“Soya and beef are directly linked to losing the Amazon. Whatever we do when we go to the supermarket we are having an impact as we are so internationally connected. What we purchase does directly affect the environment - we are becoming more aware of it and getting that information and once people have it they will stop buying it"
Would you believe Sweden have been including products’ carbon emissions on labels since 2009!
Do you think it’d be a good idea to include a food’s carbon footprint, and would it make you think twice before buying something?
