In this short video, Bill Nye promotes an "eco-friendly kitchen," focusing on the problems associated with purchasing more food than is consumed and the improper disposal of food waste. This program is part of the Stuff Happens series that examines the everyday use of 'stuff' in our lives that can have far-reaching effects on our planet. Bill encourages students to buy less food more often and to compost waste. Not only will these practices save money and fertilize gardens, they will support a more sustainable waste management plan moving forward.
This video would be an excellent tool to initiate a discussion on food waste disposal that could lead to a stewardship project in the community to promotes source reduction. It is also an effective tool in science, technology and geography programs to address outcomes related to human interactions and the environment, technology and the environment and sustainable communities.
