    #18 Alessandro Masnaghetti, the Mapman - why understanding landscape is important in sustainability thinking

    In this episode we walk the landscapes of Barolo and Chianti with the Mapman Alessandro Masnaghetti. He explains how understanding landscapes increases our understanding of how and where sustainable farming and viticulture is possible. We all think about the justification for such an agricultural product as wine, as we could easily live without wine, but there are several reasons why vineyards play an important role in global agriculture - listen and find out.

    #17 Laura Donadoni - Italian wine girl - discrimination prevention and sexual harassment education

    Many issues of social sustainability is a subject too rarely touched in the wine world. It’s often for the uncomfortable topics that we need to find straightforward solutions. In this episode I speak with Laura Donadoni who brought up a great, simple idea that is used in other industries in the USA and proposed it to the Italian wine industry; sexual harrasment prevention courses that teach and educate workers how to recognize inappropriate behaviour and how to act when we experience or vitness such behaviour. The italian Donne del Vino association is strongly supporting Laura’s initiative and has engaged Italian ministry of equal opportunity into it.

    #16 Claudio Agostini - Vetri Speciali - Wild Glass - recycled materials

    How can we reduce the negative impacts of packaging - one effective way is recycling glass and accepting visually imperfect recycled glass bottles and lighter weight bottles. Claudio Agostini from glass packaging manufacturer Vetri Speciali explains in this episode the development and production process of glass bottles made with 100% recycled glass materials.

     Cullet:  is defined as recycled broken or waste glass used in glassmaking, and furnace-ready cullet is uniform in size, free of contaminants and often sorted by color. Cullet creation is the form of glass recycling that saves huge quantities of energy and toxic emissions, more here 
     Quote:
    “When it comes to containers, glass is always the best choice, but it's important to let the consumer know that we are committed not only to polluting less but also to ensure that our entire supply chain is as sustainable as possible…We control our suppliers and check if they work correctly not only regarding the environment, but also from a social point of view. We are still trying to build a complete supply chain that follows sustainability more and more.”

    #15 Stefano Scavino, farmer and owner of Duipuvrun farm - Farm to fork actions through biodiversity

    Last year in October, the European Parliament took a very important vote to accept a Farm to Fork strategy. It is at the heart of the European Green Deal. Aiming to make food systems fair, healthy and environmentally friendly. Food Systems cannot really be resilient to crises such as the pandemic we've just had if they are not sustainable. Stefano Scavino is really Walking the Talk in this and he tells us about his Farm to Fork farming and consumer engagement in this episode.
