    • Documentary DP

    This entrepreneur has always loved surfing, but felt conflicted about the unsustainable materials used in traditional board shaping. In response to this "surfer's paradox," he created a startup that manufactures 3D printed surfboards from plastic trash.

  • Lemon Caviar

    • Documentary DP

    On a farm in Eus, France, where the sun shines 320 days out of the year, Etienne and Perrine Schaller grow lemon caviar. This special fruit, native to Australia, is known in the English-speaking world as finger lime. Lemon caviar is full of beads of deliciousness that look just like caviar. And, like caviar, it’s pricey. The Schallers sell theirs to top chefs like Daniel Lutrand, who invites us to Le Pastis Restaurant in Montpellier, France, to sample one of his elegant dishes.
