          Every year this flat throws out half a tonne of uneaten food, wasting $8,000 on groceries which go straight into the bin, and they spend even more on clothes and shoes. Its time to turn these frivolous shopaholics into thrifty eco warriors. Synopsis: These four young professionals enjoy a lifestyle based around convenience and luxury. They over-shop at the supermarket, then throw out $130 worth (8 kg) of food every week. They happily chow down on takeaways and coffee-to-go and biff the packaging without a thought of the resources used to make it. The three girls wardrobes are overflowing with designer clothes worth more than $50,000. The bottle-blonde sisters suffer from burning scalps thanks to the chemical hair dyes they use and Alanna’s 13 year old 2.8L gas guzzler spews out more carbon emissions per year than the average New Zealander. The WA$TED! team wake these urbanites up to their wasteful ways by dumping a year’s worth of uneaten food on their doorstep. We point them in the right direction by curbing their shocking shopping habits and offering eco alternatives to their chemical coifs and cars. Will these fashion-conscious flatmates be happy to make a few more personal sacrifices and face up to the fact that green is the new black?

            DIY Dave’s three skip loads of building waste is causing an environmental disaster and his unfinished building jobs could be affecting his family’s health. We set him to task; stripping back his shop-a-holic habits, finding a solution to his polluting boat and fix their boggy backyard, saving them a load of cash. Synopsis: Ex-builder Dave has been renovating his house but his unfinished and badly managed DIY projects have sent more than three skip loads of building waste to landfill. When not creating waste his other specialty is creating clutter – impulse buying tools and other junk that never get used. Meanwhile Karen creates havoc of her own cranking the dryer instead of using the washing line, choosing to blame the boggy backyard rather than her own laziness. The WA$TED! team install a rain garden to fix their drainage problem, encourage Wade to join the Walking School Bus to reduce emissions and congestion at the school gates, and find a petrol free alternative to their polluting motorboat. We challenge Dave to finish his DIY jobs using leftover building materials and Karen to find new homes for their unused junk. Will three weeks be enough for them to change their wasteful ways and save them cash?

                Sombath Somphone worked for 30 years to promote sustainable development through training and educating young people in Lao PDR. In 1996, he founded Participatory Development Training Center (PADETC), which he headed until mid 2012. In 2005, he received the Ramon Magsaysay Award (Asia’s Nobel Prize) in recognition of his efforts to promote sustainable development in Laos “by training and motivating its young people to become a generation of leaders”. On 15 Dec 2012 he disappeared in Vientiane, and is believed to have been abducted. His family and friends have appealed for his safe return, but there was no news until 4 Jan 2013. http://sombath.org This video is edited from an interview TVE Asia Pacific filmed with Sombath in September 2008 for the Saving the Planet Asian regional TV series. Excerpts appeared in the Lao story that featured PADETC’s efforts to transform Lao education. He outlines his vision for inclusive and sustainable development, and how digital technologies can be used to spread knowledge and education among youth, enabling them to create their own media to tell their own stories.
