Feed the Planet: Can a Scientific Commission Save the World, U.S. Cut Back on Eating Meat, Zero-Waste Restaurants


"Nowadays, there are two conceptions about sustainability that are wrong. The one that bothers me most is when people think that this is a trend and not a responsibility or a commitment. I understand that it is a great responsibility to think about the future, about what we are going to leave behind and what we are doing to our own environment. But it’s a problem and if we don’t start working on it and solving it today, there will be no solution tomorrow. We have barely enough time.”

- Eneko Atxa, Chef at 3 Michelin star Azurmendi
