Absurd transport

We increasingly consume products which come from further and further afield. The transport of these goods causes traffic that could very often be avoided. Scandinavian shellfish that are peeled in Morocco and then sold in our supermarkets, or Italian waste that crosses the Alps to be burned in Germany are only two examples from an endless list. Moreover, the many empty lorry trips across the Alps also cause unnecessary traffic.

Alpine Initiative

The Alpine Initiative is a Swiss association. In 1989 the association launched the popular initiative "for the protection of the Alpine region from transit traffic", that was accepted on the 20th February 1994 by a majority of both the Swiss population and the cantons.
