South Australia is a bit of a trend setter when it comes to leading the environmental cause, from container recycling to banning plastic bags, to having the lowest food waste per capita.

CRC CEO Steven Lapidge joins Jennie Lenman to talk about his company's achievements and goals this World Environment Day and what industries and consumers can do to make a world of difference for the planet.
