Carbon footprint is about the most useful and measurable metric when discussing a product's environmental credentials. The lower the emissions the more “eco” it is.
An item's carbon footprint is the best and fairest way to compare two eco products.
The carbon footprint is the total amount of green- house gas emissions produced during the entire lifespan of the product from raw material, produc- tion, manufacture, delivery, use and disposal or destruction.
Accurately measuring the footprint is very difficult, expensive and time
A carbon neutral product is most likely to have utilised a carbon offset scheme. There are mixed opinions on the adequacy of some
of these schemes.
Offsetting can also be an excuse for indulgence rather than a reason to actively try and reduce a footprint.
