Added sulfites is the legal reason. But philosophy also plays a part
You say "Because of travel, waste, and agricultural byproducts, wine is a product that can have serious effects on the environment and leave a Sasquatch-sized carbon footprint. It can contribute to global warming.."
I really don't understand what you're getting at here. Travel? If you mean flying to visit a winery, yes that's carbon intensive. But it's by no means factored into the making of wine.
As to waste and contributing to global warming, I would submit that you check out the "lagoons" associated with cattle farms--not to mention their methane. Indeed, eating a burger has a much larger ("sasquatch sized"?) carbon footprint than enjoying a bottle of wine.
I've posted a few posts around this complex theme if it's something you're interested in:
