World's first carbon neutral braOdd how liberals shift the language: as Anthony Watts observes, isn't an Asian low-illumination factory "just code for 'sweatshop with no lights'"?
The world's first carbon neutral bra, made in a factory run on solar panels, has been launched onto the fashion market with hopes that all clothing will be more environmentally friendly in future.
The Marks and Spencer (M&S) lingerie set, that will be available online, was made in an 'eco factory' in Sri Lanka where energy has been reduced a third through measures like making sure all lighting is from the sun or low energy light bulbs.
It is powered by hydroelectricity produced on a nearby river and solar panels on the roof.
The rest of the carbon dioxide produced in making the bra will be offset by planting 6,000 trees in the community every year.
