Food for thought...pun intended. Thanks for all the links, this is something that is always in my mind. You wouldn't believe the amount of stuff that gets thrown away in restaurants and caterers, it is disgusting and depressing. One time I was trying to donate pastry unsold items to a bettered woman's center and the owner got mad at me for not asking his approval and he never wanted to deal with the problem again. It is something nobody wants to think about.

I will check those links out.


Buon 25 aprile! (Anche se sei negli States...)


Ciao Simo, approfitto di una veloce connessione per salutarti da Singapore, a presto, bacio!

Ciao Laura. Isn't it sad that it is easier to trash food than to redirect it so that it doesn't get wasted? Prepared food is a bit more difficult to handle than raw food, but I am sure there are ways to prevent good-quality food to end up in the landfill. As we all become more aware of the topic, we can exert pressure in various ways so that food does not get wasted.

Ciao Baol. Negli States e' semplicemente lunedi' :)

Ciao Astro e grazie del messaggio. Buon proseguimento del viaggio.


I've been thinking about Earth Day as well. I'm afraid I don't practice what I preach, because I can't avoid taking too many planes. Having said that, I try to avoid other damages to a world which is not mine to use, and food waste is definitely one of the things I avoid more successfully.

In Wales we basically recycled it all, apart from animal bones and a few odd items. The council made compost for us with food waste (and grass trimmings!), and you could get it back for your garden: it was so convenient. My parents have a compost bin, but honestly it is a bit stinky. Here in Germany, although the state is more committed to green energies, I found the level of recycling to be nowhere near as widespread or efficient. I love however that you pay a deposit for every glass and plastic bottle you use.

Ciao Caffettiera. City-wide yard and food waste collection is a great way to keep organic material out of the landfill. In the SF Bay Area such collection is well established, but it is difficult to get people to do it. San Francisco addressed this by making food waste recycling mandatory for business and residents. Besides being easier to handle than a compost bin, it allows recycling of items you would not be able to put in the compost bin. You can tell I am a big supporter. I also favor paying a deposit for bottles.
