Eating Out and Food Waste. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle in Bangalore
The Silicone Valley of India, Bangalore, has improved its fast food and street food. Unfortunately, these also increased the food waste in the streets. Buffets also create a lot of garbage because people tend to have bigger envies than what their stomach can take. Some solutions exist: propose different portion sizes or warn people who over-order. Another idea would be to recycle the food waste into biomethane gas.
To sum up, keep in mind the “3R”: Reduce, Re-use and Recycle.
This film is part of a series of 6 films that reveal the complexity of food consumption dynamics among the middle classes in two rapidly changing, urban centres: Metro Manila, the Philippines and Bangalore, India. Based on a two-year academic research project, the six films highlight the changing patterns, practices and policies related to food consumption in these two mega-cities.
