Slide OUR DAILY WASTE is an embarrassing, frightening, but an honest portrait of my family. At the same time, however, it is a portrait and a reflection of changes in society, where "time pressures" takes over life completely. More people have a good income, food becomes cheaper and food resources become less and less valued. A portrait that unfortunately many will be able to recognise of themselves - and not just in Norway. ONE FAMILY -
365 DAYS OF

Slide CONTINUE THE JOURNEY » This is the first time This is the first time that a thorough examination of all of a family's food waste has been carried out over a whole year. The food waste was dissected, weighed and sorted into different categories. The work has resulted in more than 1,078 images, with associated information and statistics. Every day and every picture is a little story in itself.
Del 1 av prosjektet har blitt en utstilling og bok - støttet av Fritt Ord.

Are there technologies and methods that can make it easier for us not to throw away food? What methods work, are they easy to implement and are there anything we are willing to do every day?
