TED talk: Tristram Stuart on the Global Food Waste Scandal


Like so many of our environmental problems, feeding the world’s population (without destroying the planet) would be made much easier by improving efficiency since we waste a whole heck of a lot of food!

The following video is another (amazing) TED talk.  This time, the subject is food waste and the presenter is Tristram Stuart.  (Try saying that ten times, real fast!)  Mr. Stuart is an activist who “works with a range of NGOs, governments, and private enterprises to tackle the global food waste scandal”.  He is also an author, having published in 2009 the book Waste: Uncovering the Global Food Scandal.

(Thank you to Silke for having originally posted this video on her blog, Mind, Nature and Society, which you should all go and visit!)

    Thanks! Please let me know, what you’ve found.
    In Germany, most of the supermarket bins are locked away in order to avoid publicity.
    Have a nice weekend! sis
