retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Guardian reports that “supermarket giant Tesco has become the first UK retailer to display the full carbon footprint of milk — one of the top-selling products in its stores. From today, all Tesco own-label full-fat, semi-skimmed and skimmed milk ranges will display the carbon footprint label as part of an on-going drive to help shoppers make ‘green’ purchasing decisions.”

Tesco has promised to label some 500 products with carbon footprint information by the end of the year.
