low hanging fruit.

A new film worth seeing, Wasted looks at one of the great tragedies of our time – the fact that people go hungry while we throw away food.

Our wasteful tendencies have far reaching consequences, ranging from overfishing to climate change.  These are things we generally don’t associate with the uneaten food on our plates.

The narrative breaks down the food waste issue into a stepwise approach to mitigation.  To me, this is the best kind of environmental problem to have.  The solutions are manageable, and within our grasp.  They involve beautiful things, like gardens, and they invite a fresh look at our cuisine.  The solutions can be homegrown and delicious.  What more could we ask for?
