CNN’s “Going Green” delves into groundbreaking innovations aimed at creating a more environmentally-friendly food industry.

In an era increasingly devoted to sustainability, the forthcoming episode of “Going Green” embarks on an enlightening odyssey tracing the complete life cycle of food – from the seeds sown in the earth to its culmination after consumption.

CNN introduces us to extraordinary trailblazers and organizations spearheading the metamorphosis of the food industry, aligning ecological preservation with a steady stream of nourishing sustenance.

First in focus is Loowatt, a London-based enterprise championing a novel strategy to tackle challenges related to sanitation and hygiene. With nearly one million annual deaths attributed to water, sanitation, and hygiene-related diseases, and countless more lacking proper sanitation facilities, Loowatt’s innovative toilet system proficiently segregates waste at its source, transforming it into valuable resources. By doing so, Loowatt not only enhances human dignity and hygiene standards but also makes significant strides in mitigating the ecological consequences stemming from inadequate sanitation.

Next, CNN journeys to Compton, California, a city steeped in farming history. The spotlight shines on Plenty, a pioneering agricultural startup that has unveiled an impressive $100 million facility, touted as potentially the world’s most technologically advanced vertical farm. Their pioneering methodology yields an astounding 350-fold increase in produce yield while utilizing only a fraction of the water customary in traditional farming. Through technological optimization of space and resources, Plenty not only offers premium, pesticide-free produce but also significantly diminishes the environmental impact associated with conventional agricultural practices.

Addressing food waste as a dual threat to the economy and climate change, the narrative shifts to Too Good To Go, a company leveraging mystery food bags as part of the solution. This Copenhagen-based venture introduces an app enabling restaurants in over 17 countries to sell surplus food that would otherwise go to waste at the end of the day. This approach benefits both patrons and the environment, championing a sustainable trajectory by efficiently redistributing food resources and curbing landfill contributions.

The spotlight then turns to Apeel Sciences in Goleta, California, an agent of change in the battle against global food waste. With a staggering one-third of produced food lost each year, Apeel Sciences devised an ingenious technology utilizing natural, edible coatings to extend the shelf life of fruits and vegetables. By harnessing the power of nature, Apeel Sciences not only helps conserve invaluable resources but also curbs the carbon footprint linked to food waste.

Finally, CNN presents TerraCycle, a Trenton, New Jersey-based recycling enterprise that birthed the revolutionary LOOP system, enabling companies to transition from disposable packaging to durable, reusable containers. Beyond providing convenient and sustainable packaging alternatives, the system addresses pollution, trims carbon emissions, and safeguards vital ecosystems. The journey also takes us to Hong Kong’s O-Park1 (Organic Resources Recovery Centre), a sustainable response to burgeoning landfills. By converting food waste into biogas for energy generation and compost for agriculture, O-Park1 exemplifies the global drive by cities to confront food waste challenges head-on.

Hello there! I'm a 21-year-old university student majoring in Finnish and Korean Language and Literature. I have a deep passion for art and a profound connection to the natural world. My journey through life has been a colorful one, driven by my love for creativity, music, and the wonders of the great outdoors. As a dedicated student, I've already earned a degree in Classic Cantos, a testament to my appreciation for the timeless beauty of classical music. Beyond the classroom, my artistic spirit thrives through my love for painting and drawing. These creative outlets allow me to express my thoughts and emotions, transforming blank canvases into vibrant stories. My interests go far beyond music and art. Singing, playing the piano, and exploring new melodies are integral parts of my life, providing me with both solace and exhilaration. When I'm not immersed in the world of art and music, I find solace in nature's embrace. My heart is drawn to animals and the serene beauty of the natural world, fueling my desire to protect and preserve our precious environment.
