Food waste & Dumpsterdivers

2 Oct

Amount of food we throw away every year.

Every year we throw away for billions worth of money on food, worst part is that a big part of the planet doesn’t have food at all. Most people don’t even know that a lot of food is still edible after its expiration date.

There is this group of people, called ‘dumpsterdivers’ who live from the waste of the grocery store. They don’t want to spend money on new food, when there’s enough good food in the garbage. They don’t just save a lot of money, they also “protest” against food waste.

I think this is a very interesting topic because we can’t continue to throw away that much food and we can only change something by making people aware of this problem. I don’t know if dumpster diving is the perfect solution for me but when I do grocery shopping I try to buy only products I really need and eat them before their expiration date so I don’t have to throw anything away.

This is a very interesting documentary about food waste on the Dutch program ZEMBLA/ Voedsel verspilling – ZEMBLA 2012
