Veena was interviewed by ABC Radio National for a panel discussion about to reduce plastic and food waste this Christmas.
The segment was broadcast live across Australia and is also available as a podcast.
The ABC says:
Christmas often comes with masses of plastic gifts, wrapping material, new electronic goods and all the lunch leftovers that get thrown away.
So, how can you reduce your environmental footprint over the coming weeks?
