Marie Mourad also has an interest for sustainable development issues, as well as for the third sector.

Waste aims at uncovering the food waste scandal. Tristram Stuart conducts an overall analysis of the food industry based on various studies and precise examples. He explains that reducing food waste, which represents almost 50% of food production in developed countries, would considerably improve the environmental and social impacts of the whole food system. The book really uncovers a scandal in a dynamic and humoristic way. Stuart also gives innovative, pragmatic and easy solutions to the problem, from an altruist and environmentally-friendly perspective.
