So much great stuff in this Green Divas Radio Show, as always. We got to speak with Jonathan Bloom, author of American Wasteland: How America Throws Away Nearly Half of its Food (and what we can do about it), who talked about the tragic food waste that is a huge problem in our culture here in the U.S. I also got a chance to speak with Rachel Sarnoff, about what to do if you have serious pests in your home and have to fumigate for our GDs at Home. Had a really encouraging chat with Marci Zaroff about the positive trends in the eco-fashion world for our GDs Eco-Style segment. Lindsay Coulter, aka The Queen of Green, from David Suzuki Foundation did a great GD Foodie-Phile segment on creating a food circle for someone in your community that may be in need. And a great GD Green Thumb from Joey and Holly Baird with tips for urban gardening.

Green Divas Feature: Jonathan Bloom
When GD Lynn was in the studio, we had a chance to speak with Jonathan Bloom, author of American Wasteland: How America Throws Away Nearly Half of its Food (and what we can do about it). I am always mortified when we come around to the topic of food waste, which I think is a huge problem in American culture, because no matter how hard I try, I too frequently find myself tossing something that has gone bad into the compost. I had of course, had what I considered a particularly painful loss earlier the day of our chat with Jonathan, so I’m happy to say, I’ve been more vigilant than ever.
