What’s wrong with these bananas that they’re being thrown away?0
What’s wrong with those bananas? Basically, they’re not pretty enough to be eaten, for largely aesthetic reasons, these bananas aren’t fit for sale and will be thrown away and not eaten by anyone. How can so many people go hungry every day, yet “40% of everything raised or grown, is not in fact, eaten.”
The image above is taken from the new documentary, Just Eat It by Grant Baldwin and Jen Rustemeyer who explore the wastefulness of the food industry from the farm, to the grocery store, and in their own fridges. Reducing food waste is certainly a priority, if we want to make better use of the resources we have.
Featuring interviews with TED lecturer, author and activist Tristram Stuart and acclaimed author Jonathan Bloom, Just Eat It looks at our systemic obsession with expiry dates, perfect produce and portion sizes, and reveals the core of this seemingly insignificant issue that is having devastating consequences around the globe. Just Eat It brings farmers, retailers, inspiring organizations, and consumers to the table in a cinematic story that is equal parts education and delicious entertainment.
