Learn More About Apeel in the New Documentary, “Power Trip: The Story of Energy”

Author: Apeel Team

Lately, there’s been a growing conversation happening around the food we consume in our daily lives, the ways in which we consume it, and the energy it takes for that all to happen.

Power Trip: The Story of Energy” takes on a conversation with a six-episode documentary based on the book (of the same name) by Dr. Michael E. Webber. Filmed around the world, the series takes a closer look at energy consumption across different industries and offers a look into new technologies that will meet the needs of our growing population.

Episode 2, “Food,” features Apeel as a solution to reduce food waste and mitigate the embodied energy consumed throughout the agrifood supply chain.

“Generally speaking, we want to be eating fresh fruits and vegetables,” says Dana Gunders, Executive Director of ReFED, “and yet those are the exact foods that go to waste most in our homes, refrigerators, and businesses.”

The segment on Apeel features interviews with co-founder and VP of Operations Jenny Du and Director of Sustainability Jess Vieira. Click below to watch the full episode on PBS.com.
