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?
