Scrap is ready!
“cucinaeco.wordpress.com” is a blog talking about a new ecological way of eating: cooking nothing but the scraps and baking them in the dishwasher (well closed in a jar).
Why it matters
Is this a way of transforming garbage into something useful, making people more conscious about how much waste they produce daily? What if brands made their products long-lasting, giving people advice about the re-utilisation or recycling of their products?
HaiDiLao Hotpot restaurants in China are known for pampering customers while they wait for a table: they can get their nails done, eat a fruit plate or even get a massage. However, the waiting has been made even more worthwhile with a cash incentive.
The longer the wait, the bigger the cash discount a customer receives. All the customer needs to do while waiting is fold paper into cranes! For every paper crane folded, the restaurant gives a 0.5 yuan ($0.08) discount.
Zéro Gâchis’ application connects consumers with retailers offering discounts to reduce food waste.
Merchants who have products close to the expiry date in stock can sell it with enticing price reductions, while consumers will be alerted to the price cuts in real-time.
