Starting the project in March 2016, Jodi Boylan has researched, developed and produced a three hour documentary series called War on Waste for ABC TV.
The series took a critical and rst-hand look at every aspect of the issue of household, retail and farming waste in Australia, and asked what changed in the Australian consumer culture to lead us to become among the most wasteful nations in the developed world.
To date, the series has reach a total of 2.6 million metro viewers (and is the top ABC program this year among the Under 50s audience) and the ABC iview War on Waste collection has clocked up more than 450,000 plays over the past month.
The #WarOnWasteAU social campaign has been the biggest in ABC’s history with ABC’s Facebook video highlighting banana wastage achieving a staggering 14 million combined views, and had a reach of 18.6 million.
Long term, Jodi would like help other women in media pursue television careers and make programs that have a positive impact on society.
