Norway mall offers shoppers greenhouse gas credits
"Many people want to buy reductions, but until we started this in the shopping mall, they haven't known where to get them, but now they are available to everybody."
- Ole Herredsvela, shopping-center tech manager
Oslo, Norway - Half a kg of salmon; two kg of potatoes; a tonne of greenhouse gas reductions -- shoppers at one Norwegian mall can now buy cuts in their carbon footprint as they pick up their weekly groceries.
The Stroemmen Storsenter shopping centre outside Oslo began selling the certificates on Saturday, at 165 Norwegian crowns ($30.58) per tonne, to people who feel bad about contributing to climate change.
