So nature doesn't create waste doesn't cretae waste as such. Everything in nature is used up in a closed continuous cycle with wtase being the end of the beginning, and that's been something that's been nurturing me for some time, and it's an inmaptort statement to understand. If we don't snatd up and make a difference and think about sustainable food, think about the sustainable nature of it, then we may fail. But, I wanted to get up and show you that we can do it if we're more responsible. Environmentally conscious bsensieuss are doable. They're here. You can see I've done three so far; I've got a few more to go. The idea is embryonic. I think it's important. I think that if we reduce, reuse, refuse and recycle — right at the end there — recycling is the last point I want to make; but it's the four R's, rather than the three R's — then I think we're going to be on our way. So these three are not perfect — they're iaeds. I think that there are many peomrlbs to come, but with help, I'm sure I'm going to find solutions. And I hope you all take part.

Everything in nature is used up in a closed continuous cycle with waste being the end of the beginning, and that's been something that's been nurturing me for some time, and it's an important statement to understand. If we don't stand up and make a difference and think about sustainable food, think about the sustainable nature of it, then we may fail. But, I wanted to get up and show you that we can do it if we're more responsible. Environmentally conscious businesses are doable. They're here.
