Our Oatmeal is Low In CO2!

The Swedes are experimenting with putting carbon emissions information right on the food label.

Fascinating.

Yes, quite interesting.

Not sure how that would go over here. People already either ignore the labels on foods or just look for the content that interests them. I'm one of the latter.

I think you would only have a select group that would care about the carbon emissions info.

I know what you mean, Kelly. As someone who does care about it, I'm not sure I know enough about the numbers to understand what the label tells me.

I do like the idea of linking ecological impact to nutritional information.
