Carbon labelling: low-carbon diet for the planet and businesses

A low-carbon diet is the ultimate cleansing diet. It may not apply to humans, but it certainly applies to... the planet! Reducing carbon dioxide is the most effective way to improve the condition of the Earth's atmosphere and mitigate climate change. Reduction is not always easy to apply, so the search for other solutions continues. One of them is carbon labelling, i.e. the labelling that informs about carbon footprint on the products’ packaging. Such labelling systems raise consumers' awareness of climate change and support their greener choices.

Melting glaciers. Now, in East Antarctica! - It pays to go green!

Melting glaciers. Now, in East Antarctica!

It was twice the size of Warsaw or roughly the size of Rome or Manhattan. The Conger shelf glacier had been unstable for some time and eventually collapsed in mid-March. This marked the first such event ever observed in the eastern part of Antarctica. What is more, it happened during - by the region's standards - record high temperatures. Many factors indicate that climate warming may be the cause. For this reason, we must remind ourselves that, wherever we are, we all influence the melting of glaciers.
