SINS Overheard: Bread Now “Unsustainable”

Bread has sustained much of the world’s population for over 30,000 years but according to University of Guelph professor Bruce McAdams the production of bread is environmentally “unsustainable”.  The carbon footprint of bread ranges from 977 grams to 1,244 grams of carbon dioxide per 800-gram loaf.  This means that the carbon emissions outweigh the actual bread, making it an unsustainable process.” – Donald Cooper’s E-Newletter July 2011
