S3 EP1 Dot Dot Dot with Tessa Clarke - Co-Founder of OLIO

The DO Lectures is an ideas sharing event started in 2007 and run out of an old cowshed in Cardigan Bay, Wales. In Season 3 of the DO podcasts, entitled 'Dot Dot Dot', Gav Thompson chats to old DO Lectures speakers about how their story has changed or grown and evolved since they gave their original DO Lecture. In this first episode of 'Dot Dot Dot' Gav talks to Tessa Clarke, the co-founder of the UK's largest sharing app OLIO. Tessa and her partner Saasha Celestial-One have taken it upon themselves to try and help eradicate food waste by promoting neighbourly sharing via their app OLIO. Food waste is a HUGE problem facing all of us and is having a very negative effect on the planet. For example. over 1/3 of all food produced globally goes to waste. An area larger than China is used to grow food every year that is never eaten. Over 25% of the world's fresh water supply is used to grown food that is never eaten. Tessa is on a mission to change all this and you can help. Please have a listen and please do leave a review, rating and subscribe. Thank you. Learn more about OLIO at
