About the Episode

In the eighth episode of season two, We Need to Talk about Eco-Anxiety, Clover explores how our relationship with food contributes to global eco-anxiety and the climate crisis.

First up, Clover meets the founder of the food waste initiative TooGoodToGo, Jamie Crummie, to discuss the enormity of our problematic global food system, and why managing food waste is the single most impactful thing individuals can do to lessen their CO2 impact. We then hear from young people about their eco-anxiety in relation to food; and Vice President of Agriculture for PepsiCo, Christine Daugherty, to find out if global corporations are envisioning a new phase for food production - and what that may look like.

"Fighting food waste is the no.1 most impactful, simplest solution that we as individuals, as leaders, as businesses, can do to reverse the effects of climate change." - Jamie Crummie

"Rather than it totally being around individual responsibility, there needs to be wholesale changes to our food system. We need to understand food waste is fundamentally a systemic issue." - Jamie Crummie
