Talk about sweets…… from a nordic perspective

08/03/2011 / Kaj

A new Nordic report shows that sweets and snacks have a significantly greater adverse impact on the environment than healthy food products. For the first time ever, this type of environmental impact has been documented. Iceland is the top scorer when it comes to intake of sweets and similar unhealthy things. The report shows, amongst other things, that a kilo of crisps emits 20 times as much CO2 as a kilo of raw, unprocessed potatoes. And sweets have an even greater harmful impact on the environment. Soft drinks with sugar are not quite so damaging.
