Do you ever wonder what the carbon footprint is of a gallon of milk or a fleece jacket or a six-pack of beer? If so, there was a very informative article in Monday's Wall Street Journal (October 6th). It was the cover story of the Environment Report section. Jeffrey Ball took an in-depth look at the carbon footprint of six products. Six Products, Six Carbon Footprints. Products we all know and probably use. Do you have a guess at how many pounds a Prius emits? What about laundry detergent? To find the answers to these questions and more read the article. You may be surprised at the carbon output of some of these products. Enjoy!
