Food waste: Throwing the planet in the bin

Johanna Kinnock and Maria Jencel find out what it actually takes to be the change they want to see in the world.

What comes in all shapes, sizes and colours, is a vital life source, and ends up in the bin one third of the time? You guessed it: food. In this episode of the 5 Podcast we’re talking about food waste. Johanna and Maria ask how big a problem it is for the planet, how we can waste less, and how we got so casual about wasting food in the first place. We’re joined by Tristram Stuart, a campaigner who wants us all to throw less away, and Mette Toftegaard Rasmussen of eSmiley, which makes software to help businesses get food waste under control. Plus, Maria comes face to face with the amount of food she actually wastes in a year.
