Detailed notes:
Today I am meeting Manuel Bruscas. He is someone that knows a lot about the topic of food waste and has written articles, appeared on TV or was speaking at conferences with the goal to solve this issue. Manuel also just wrote a book and launched a crowdfunding campaign to publish it. 

Here some of the topics we talk about:
What is this book about?
How did the idea come along and how did it evolve?
If other people have the idea to write a book about a good cause, can you recommend to publish a book about it?
What does the term food waste usually stand for?
How big is the problem? Is it growing or getting better?
What can we as consumers do to improve the problem?
