Label carbon footprint on products
Petition Background (Preamble):
When you buy a product from a local store you tend to have a choice between two or three comparable products, usually the imported product is cheaper, but the carbon emissions to create and transport it to the store are much higher.
Wouldn't it be good if when you where at your local grocery store you knew just how much carbon was emitted in importing the apples or T-shirts you where about to buy, so then you could choose the apples or other fruit with the least carbon emissions, or buy a T-shirt that has the least emissions?
If we really want to reduce carbon emissions then we as consumers need to know the true cost of what we are buying, knowledge is power!
