How environmentally friendly is Britain’s home cooking? Some food and drink manufacturers now provide carbon labels on their packaging that specify the carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) of their products.
Inspired by food and drinks brands such as Quorn and Oatly, which provide carbon labelling on their products, we have carbon labelled some of the routine activities the average family does around the house.

When we think of how technology is causing environmental damages, we often focus on physical things like using a computer or making a call, instead of its rather ‘invisible’ counterpart - the internet.
