another way for wine and tea drinkers to reduce their cabon footprint

I was in an organic food store in Brittany, and I saw some wine with a label that said "Transporté a la voile". The web adress is TOWT ? TransOceanic Wind Transport | Transport ŕ la voile TransOceanic Wind Transport | Transport ŕ la voile . They haven't made it across the Atlantic yet.

Is this spam?

I'm not understanding what this has to do with being car-free or car-light.

I think many of the car free posts are really much more PO posts. Environmentalism is an accepted religion... but a religion none the less. It has nothing more to do with cycling than does my chosen belief system.

But what do links to a wine company have to do with environmentalism?

Good point! I don't speak French and thought the links more referred to the environmental aspect of the "wind powered transport". Ether way... nothing about cycling.

Low Carbon Footprint wine? Just make your own....
But be aware that by it's very nature, fermentation releases CO2.
