The innovation discussed
Ways you can reduce food waste, reduce their impact in how you get rid of it, and how some innovative chefs are reducing food waste through the entire food usage cycle, from prior to cooking to after the food has been rejected towards the trash.
What YOU can do with this innovation
- See where you can waste less food, whether better planning, better understanding of “best before” dates, or otherwise.
- Figure out how to minimize the impact of the food you have to throw out from the from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and practical tips in the documentary.
- Get inspired to cook with more of the food you can buy, better food and/or not judge food you buy based on their appearance alone.

This is the final part of 3 posts showing all the ads TED deemed worth spreading. Please click on the links for Part 1 and Part 2.
The TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) community just released its 2011 Ads Worth Spreading contest winners, and the ads are better than the ones I have seen for the Super Bowl in any year! But what did you expect from a brilliant group who’s moniker is “Ideas Worth Spreading”?
These ads aren’t like those in the Super Bowl where they last 30-60 seconds. They tend to be much longer, often the full version of the ad rather than the truncated TV time version. However, with ads like these, I could watch commercials in place of TV shows because I don’t notice how long or short the ads were. I’m actually a little sad once it’s over, alongside whatever mood the commercials left me in.
I have posted the ads here because I have found higher quality versions of the ads than the ones available on the TED website. Otherwise, I’d have just linked to them all on TED’s site.
Enjoy and be prepared to be wowwed!!!
