From Mr Michael Spring.

Sir, Tyler Brûlé advises: “... eat only 80 per cent of what’s put in front of you.” (“A springtime special delivery”, Life & Arts, April 21.) Perhaps Mr Brûlé should try to compensate a little for his planet-sized carbon footprint by encouraging his readers to take 20 per cent less food on to their plates rather than throwing 20 per cent away?
