I love the handheld, 90’s feel of this video clip and classic 90’s ravey drum machine sound. I can’t get enough of this song.
Study shows that shoppers will ditch red meat when they are shown its climate impact on shopping receipts
Oda, a supermarket in Norway introduced a flagging system to categorise the climate impact of their products on shoppers’ receipts. They have found that since introducing the scheme in 2021, the sales of carbo-heavy products (including meat) have fallen.
“Our customers told us that they find it close to impossible to know what is climate-friendly. We thought it was an important challenge to solve. We do not want to point fingers and tell our customers what to buy and what to avoid – climate receipts are what our customers asked for. Customer feedback has, reportedly, been positive and a surge in plant-based groceries has been identified. One in every five burgers sold is now vegetarian and the popularity of vegetarian meals generally has grown. Lentil soup was one of our top ten sold recipes last year – the previous years it was nowhere near the top ten.”~ Louise Fuchs, director at Oda supermarket.

Something about this room and it’s glistening stereo, colour scheme and harmony of shapes does it for me, I am not even sure why though?
