Carbon Labeling - Would it influence you? 7° (7 replies)

As I sit here typing this out I just noticed that my bottle of soda has 110 calories per 250ml and 29g of carbohydrates as well. There is no protein, no fat and no carbon cost label. Why not? In our society we label everything. My medication tells me to ...

Are plastic bags really that bad? 6° (1 reply)

Coal = Devastation 5° (5 replies)

It's 10am, do you know where your electricity has been? Does your provider buy electricity from power plants using coal sourced from mountain top removal, MTR, operations.
