Freshly arrived in Edinburgh I got straight away in touch with Food Sharing Edinburgh.
The first food saving event I have been involved in was the collection of food excess at the end of the world-famous Edinburgh Christmas Markets, that take place each year on the East Princes St Gardens, right under the castle.
It has been eye-opening!
I was stunned by the actual quantity of food we were able to save and that if not collected would have ended in the trash the next day. Just check it out:
It was also quite an exercise to go up and down, for four trips, the numerous stairs of the many alleyways around Royal Mile, with tens of kg of food!
Right after this astonishing experience, I decided to create the following video infographic to promote this endeavour and to try and increase the awareness of the general public to this issue.
