Denmark is a European pioneer in cutting down on food waste, but the real problem is overproduction. This small Scandinavian country still has a long way to go to get it under control.
Each year, 11 million tons of food ends up in the bin in Germany. Now, a Danish app wants to help restaurants save their leftovers from the trash can.
Europe throws away 88 million tons of food each year, while globally 800 million people face malnutrition. Now, a Berlin restaurant is showing we can do better, dishing up tasty meals from produce headed for the trash.
This week, we find eco inspiration in Kenya’s recycled pencils and the Berlin restaurant serving up food that was headed for the trash. Plus, will Zulu warriors switch to fake fur to save the leopard?
More than one-third of all food is spoiled or squandered. Led by an activist with a passion for food, Denmark has been working intensively on solutions. Eliminating "UFOs" is just one thing regular people can do to help.
