The world’s most expensive doggy bag
In Germany, nearly 11 tons of food is thrown away every year. A restaurant in Hamburg has decided to tackle this problem in their very own way by putting a sign on tables informing visitors that they will pay a fine for their unfinished meal (€1 per 50 grams).
Why it matters
In times where a considerable proportion of the global population suffers from hunger or malnutrition, is this is a good way of reminding people of their actions? Is imposing a fine enough to make us more conscious of our disposable and wasteful ways?
The French restaurant “Mon Histoire dans l’assiette” has created an innovative menu: it is entirely free of 11 of the most common allergens.
It also serves seasonal ingredients to show that the range of food guests - with some form of food intolerance or another - can eat doesn’t need to be so limited.
