I came across this really interesting article. It talks about carbon footprints, which is the amount of greenhouse gasses emitted by or person or in this case groups. Groups like livestock companies who statistically emit more greenhouse gasses every year than the whole transportation industry. So what do they do? They are working on a system that would require companies to print their carbon footprint on the packaging like nutritional information.

Could work. Could not work.

Look at the amount of obesity in our society, people obviously dont care what or how they eat and those lazy people do not care about what is put into the environment either. But hey, it’s a start. the first step is awareness right?

This article has a few very good and informative tips about choosing quality ingredients that are free from pesticides and and high cost processing and packaging. Free Range Revolution!
