Almost 6 hours of audio raw material have now been analysed and reflected upon in just 15 minutes. Malin Leth meet up with Evelina Lundqvist of The Good Tribe to discuss and share their impressions from the first season and summarize the three key factors that are most important for creating a zero waste society. However, they are not sure of…. the last one? What would you add?
Moreover, Evelina has shares her feeling of stomach ache because the waste problem is so big and Malin has been busy trying to grasp the enormous amount of trash that we humans generate every year. Finding the best equivalent for 2 billion tonnes of waste is not easy though.
After calculating soccer fields and blue whales she ends up with the classic example of ship containers. But does that make it easier to understand? Either way, a systematic shift is needed.
