France has become the world's first country to ban supermarket waste and compel large retailers to donate unsold food. While many charities hail the legislation, some worry about their capacity to handle the extra food. In a refrigerated room of the massive Carrefour supermarket in western Paris, director Soed Toumi points to carts piled high with food: Packs of yoghurt and pudding, slightly stale pastries, and baguettes. In a matter of hours, the food will be carted away for distribution to the needy. Legislation passed in February makes France the world's first country to ban supermarket waste and compel large retailers like Carrefour to donate unsold food – or face a fine of 3,750 euros ($ 4,230). The law is a first stab at rethinking consumption practices in a country where an estimated 7 million tons of food is thrown away each year. While consumers are the biggest culprits, restaurants and stores account for about a quarter of food waste. But when it comes to her store, Toumi says the law doesn't change much. The supermarket donates the equivalent of 320,000 meals each year to four local charities. "We've already been fighting against waste," she says. "But if the law allows others to follow our example, why not?" Not all French supermarkets boast similar practices. The average store is believed to throw away roughly 20 kilos of unsold food each day. Some have reportedly poured bleach on products, rendering them inedible – ostensibly to avoid food poisoning and legal problems.

Anaconda, Apple, and Cars: Katie Notopoulos @katienotopoulos What was "the incident" in your high school? 8:28 PM 25 Dec 17 1,992 Retweets 7,994 Likes derpsquadk-pop: chocolate-cloud-artist: foxflaim: cubeget: libertarirynn: Most of my “incidents“ occurred in college because I was homeschooled. They include: The time a mentally ill homeless man looked up porn on the library computer and then wandered campus claiming he was Jesus. The time the school announced in the middle of the week that if we didn’t get our financial shit together immediately, the school would shut down in a few days and those of us in the middle of completing our majors would be boned. The time our financial advisor was caught embezzling a quarter million dollars The guy who wandered campus in a blue gimp suit A clique of students I never personally knew arrived to school with a Mexican flag and hung it up on the wall of the cafeteria when lunch time came around. They then stood up on the tables and proceeded to chant “F*ck Trump” and tried to get others in the lunch room to join in. They were semi-successful, and the crowd grew larger. This was, of course, not 100% safe for school grounds, so all the staff of the school had to step in to calm things down. This only made them more upset, and the group turned into a small riot, ultimately leading up to the police arriving on campus and me being hit in the head by an airborn apple as i was sitting down at one of the lunch tables watching it unfold. I wasn’t even hungry that day. Okay, but you missed a couple things, my dude. Things picked up, not when they tried to calm people down, but when an administrator came in and took the flag down, because it wasn’t appropriate school behavior and it was blocking a clock. And this wasn’t just a food fight, but a full blown riot. I’m talking, trash cans were thrown, people had cuncusioun, someone got a few people were convinced that it wasn’t the police, but ICE, or what ever it was called there to arrest people. The entire school went into lockdown and there was around ten or so police cars in the parking lot. They wouldn’t let us leave through the front door, but made everyone shuffle out through the back bus lot. Also, going to the nearby park, there at least 25 more cop cars waiting just in case.Interesting day. That day was a mess, a literal and figurative mess. It really was😩😩 I was just trying to get to class but got stampeded by all the rioting students who were exiting the cafeteria. Yoooooo wtf?
