Fruits & Légumes Moches
Often people don’t think about all of the food being wasted when they sort through their refrigerators. Perhaps what’s even more frightening, is the fact that no one thinks about the fact that “spoiled” fruits and vegetables found at supermarkets can be used to create juices and supplements. Instead, they just go unused and wasted. It goes without saying that people waste way too much food, and food waste comes in many different forms. Whether we’re throwing out fully-cooked meals from restaurants daily or tossing our produce out when it gets slightly brown, it seems like we’re always inventing new ways to waste food. A shocking 1/3 of all food produced, or 1.3 billion tons, gets lost or wasted according to one major world study, and many of the world’s “ugliest” vegetables never even make it to store shelves. More often than not, they find themselves tossed into the garbage, never to see the light of day. One French Supermarket chain, Intermarché, has taken it upon themselves to do their part to solve this problem, however, and so far it’s been a smashing success.
