We can't understand why people throw food away. Please, don't take too much food on your plate. Or if you can't eat all now why not save it for later? Ok, I understand that sometimes you can't take food with you and eat later. Or sometimes food is so bad that after the first bite you don´t want to eat more.
But at home - please consider before you fill your fridge every week so full that part of the food goes to waste before you have a change to eat it. Every week you carry food to the bin. Don't do that anymore! Make a plan about weekly meals or ask your friends to come and eat with you more often if there are some left overs. There are even some Facebook groups where you can donate food. Planning saves you money. And at the same time you save a little piece of the world.
Depending on the source, about 30% of all food produced in the world ends up to the garbage. For example in Finland, average household produces about 23 kg food waste every year. Also food companies produce food waste and surplus food.
Of course, as a cafe our showcase must look nice and we must have some food ready for the customers. But why throw everything away at the end of day if there are some left overs? Nowadays you can use apps such as ResQ or Karma. In Finland we use ResQ, but here in Sweden Karma is more popular. Please check out our deals for those apps - almost everyday there is some offers from us there to avoid food waste. You will get a good deal and we can save the world a little again together.
