Waste is not just an environmental problem – it is a climate problem. When materials are wasted, so is the energy that went into their extraction and production. Considering that two-thirds of all materials are wasted every year, it is worth exploring how we can reduce our consumption and the waste associated with it.
For this purpose, we invited Evelina Lundqvist and Malin Leth, the co-hosts of the Love Zero Waste podcast. They paint a picture of how our economic system has to change and what we as individuals can do.
This episode builds on Episode 20, where we speak about conscious consumption and the circular economy.
