It might be time to get familiar with the label to the right, because it might be showing up on all food and household products in the near future. The premise is actually a great one – it promotes consumers to buy more environmentally responsible products that overall have a lesser impact, which in turn puts pressure on the manufacturing companies to come out with products that leave a smaller carbon footprint. The Carbon Trust has been working on this project with supermarkets around the UK for some time now, but there has just been a similar program proposed in California. Right now it’s not being mandated by any government organization, but is instead being asked for by the consumer, and the companies that have nothing to hide are the first to comply.
