Episode 152: Waste Not

A different kind of video this week.  Wanting to mix it up between personal stories and fun factual pieces,  this quirky little vignette highlights one of many ways we can be creating renewable energy.  With approximately 40% of US food being wasted ever year, and only 5% of that waste being recycled, there is a lot of room for positive change.  This short film highlights a Colorado energy company’s attempts to turn that waste into energy by collecting from grocery stores, restaurants and dairy farms.   We followed along on garbage trucks in zero-waste focused Boulder and behind the scenes at a bio digester and composting site.
