Tesco the largest grocery retailer in the UK has enlisted the help of Oxford University in devising a carbon labeling system.  In theory the system would allow the consumer the ability to gain a better understanding of a products carbon footprint.

The massive project will entail figuring out the carbon footprint of over 70,000 products and will be funded by Tesco, for the tune of £5m.  This latest endeavor by Tesco has left us a little bit skeptical and we will readily admit this is not the first time we have questioned the large retailers business practices.
