A hotel chef prepares vegetable salads from rejected green peas and green beans salads, grown by Kenyan farmers but rejected by UK supermarkets due to cosmetic imperfections, on February 19, 2013 during the Governing Council of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) at the UN headquarters in Nairobi.
