RESEARCHERS FOUND THAT U.S. PER CAPITA FOOD WASTE HAS PROGRESSIVELY INCREASED BY ABOUT

50%

SINCE 1974 REACHING MORE THAN

1400 CALORIES

PER PERSON PER DAY OR 150 TRILLION CALORIES PER YEAR.

I ate zero of the tomatos that I
used to shoot one of the films.
I could have made 8 salads,
feeding me for two and half days.

“That’s about twice as much energy as Switzerland consumes in a year for all purposes, so we could power them up and then some.”

—Professor Michael Webber

I wasted 13 total apples that
cost me $4.66. Which is .36 each.
(I did have a bit of one apple.)

I made one of the films while
I was hungry and waiting to eat.
My dinner was one of the props.
It cost me 15 duckets.
