What’s food waste? How can we reduce how much food we throw away?
Hey Gen C Changemakers. This is Generation Carbon. The podcast where kids like you, help grownups like us, save the planet.
We know you have tough questions about climate change, and we believe you deserve the answers!
In this episode of Generation Carbon, we are learning about Food Waste. Where does our food go when we throw it out, and what does that mean for the environment? Are there ways we can reduce the amount of food that goes to waste?
Our Science Spark comes from Ryan, our Gen C Changemaker in Virginia, USA. We hear what’s going on firsthand from Edie and Penelope Possum! Learn more from Anna Gray from Food Stash Vancouver and Gen C Super Scientific Story Reporter Luke from Colorado, USA. Chloe, from Toronto, shares what action she has taken to reduce food waste.
