Great Britain New “Green” Labels

In an effort to transform the British diet and to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, new “green” food labels will show how much carbon was produced in the manufacture and transportation of food. Although the government calls on companies to consider measuring the carbon footprint of goods as well as being more honest about where meat was bred and the standards of welfare, environmental groups said the government needs to bring in legislation rather than a voluntary labeling scheme to really transform food and farming.

It would be helpful if labels would actually reflect the truth behind the manufacturing of a product. However, industries such as the meat and dairy ones, would not likely choose to show in their labels the cruelty inflicted on their animals, the devastation of the environment and the consequences to our health. By adopting a plant-based diet we are confident we are alleviating animal suffering, helping to restore the environment and helping ourselves to reclaim our health.
