Name: George Gathern
Age: 17
Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: Brighton
Campaign: To encourage people to stop wasting food

Here in Brighton, one third of all our waste is food and half of that is food we could eat.

 

I volunteer for an organisation which takes food that local supermarkets would otherwise throw away and turns it into meals for the public.

 

I think if we didn’t waste as much food we wouldn’t need as much coming into the country, therefore reducing the amount of carbon emissions that are being released.

 

The message I want to get across is that food waste is linked to global climate change and it’s a problem we can easily solve if we all try.

I would like to thank Vera Zakharov, who provided an interview for the ITV News item.
