This French grocery store just started doing what every grocery store should be doing: selling produce that is edible. This means selling produce that doesn’t fit into the manicured expectation of a perfectly shaped tomato or carrot. And then, the best part –selling it at a discount. This is an amazing and practical way to curb food waste.
Countries like Norway are close to following France’s example. As Care2 petition author Franziska Kalisch points out, we must stop throwing away healthy and natural produce.
Even the wealthiest and most successful countries owe it to impoverished children, families, and the environment to stop needlessly trashing healthy and nutritious foods. Franziska writes, “…There were 78 200 children [in Norway] that lived in poverty in 2012. How can we know of this and at the same time throw away perfectly edible food that could feed hundreds of people every day?”
A good question that every country must ask.
