The Environmental solution sign now

The resource input to output ratio for a sheet of copy paper is 92 : 1. This means that every wasted sheet wastes 92 times its own weight of all the resources that went into its manufacture. The higher the ratio the greater the refinement in natural resources required and therefore the greater level of greenhouse emissions. This petition is a call to all governments to begin the process of legislating that all consumer goods have this ratio printed on the label. This will then allow the consumer market to choose the most efficiently manufactured products and the ones that costs the earth the least. The greenhouse affect will then begin to be improved not only because people will become more aware of the full impact of each buying decision on the environment eg the impact of a single sheet of paper is magnified 9200\%, therefore encouraging people to be more knowingly considerate. But it will also be improved because efficient manufacturers will be rewarded by the market for their efforts in lowering their product's resource ratio's. This ratio shows the cost to the earth and in an age where the earth is under threat from over consumption this ratio will let the consumer work out for themselves if they are getting good value, and whether the cost of things like a cheap plastic and metal object are really worth the cost when you have a chance to imagine it and add it all up..and imagine the size of the pile of resources as that went into each article before you buy it.

Every product costs the earth..its time we knew how much.

I agree begin putting the ratio on products starting with paper where the data is already available.
