Ok, it’s been a year and a half since France banned food waste, but I find it such a tremendously positive example that I wanted to put them in the spotlight once more. I hope more countries will follow.
What did they exactly ban? The country banned grocery stores from throwing away food. Makes sense doesn’t it? Why unnecessarily waste food? It doesn’t make sense, does it.
Punishments for those caught breaking the law either has to pay €3750 – €75000 or up to 2 years in prison.
Curious how they’ve gotten on in France after enforcing this law? Read more here.
