Wasted Waste (2018)


3,6 million kg of food is wasted every day. 870 million people could be fed only with the world’s wasted food (FAO). 800 million people are starving around the world. 1/3 of the food ends up in the trash while 198 000 hectares are used to produce food that is never consumed.

This documentary is about individual lifestyles with conscious repercussions in the collective. Because from Nature’s point of view there is no such thing as waste. It’s the symbiotic aspect of life. Nature is a unified system of interdependent variables. Each one with a cause and reaction.

Freeganism is an alternative lifestyle based on the boycott of capitalism, aiming to reduce the impact in our ecosystem, rejecting any form of human or animal exploitation. This is achieved through limited and resource-conscious consumption, as well as the rescue of waste, in a society that produces above its needs.
