Cradle to Cradle (or Waste = Food)
This is a 50 minute documentary that is absolutely inspiring. Created by the founders of Cradle to Cradle, they are remaking the way we make things and changing the way ‘stuff’ is viewed. Summed up in 3 words, Waste equals Food talks about how waste is simply stupid, and how in nature something’s waste is food for something else. This is how we should be making things. It’s a must to watch and gives hope to those of us looking for a sustainable world.
