Our explainer video about FOOD WASTE was awarded a Deauville Gold Green Award
Each second, 313 kilogrammes of food are thrown away in Germany, although a billion people in the world suffer from hunger. But that’s not all. Did you know? The sheer quantities of discarded food are responsible for 25% of all pollution.
To raise awareness for this very subject we created an explainer video. And this video has now been distinguished with an honour: the Gold Green Award from the Deauville Film Festival in the category of “Responsible Consumption & Eco-Labels”!
The winning video about food waste doesn’t only call attention to problems. It also presents solutions and gives instructions for how each of us can stop food from ending up on the rubbish heap.
You can watch the explainer video here.
The Deauville Green Awards
The Green Awards are presented in France every year to films and videos addressing the themes of sustainability and ecological innovation.
In the past few years, videos by Arte and the WWF have received distinctions.
On this occasion, once again congratulations and a big thank you to our volunteer Jana Eberwein, the author of the script, and to the simpleshow team who helped put this explainer video together!
Here is Jana told about the objectives of her simpleshow:
“simpleshow foundation explains different topics to everyones understanding. I found that one big problem of our society is food waste. It has major effects not only on our environment, but also the economy and even people’s lives. With this clip I want to make aware of the problem itself and show different simple ways everyone can apply in their daily routine to help reducing food waste. Because just stating facts doesn’t fight the problem. I want to spread the word about how easy it actually is to take part in creating a better world and in which every human being can live a good life without hunger.”
