Forbidden Food Waste

A new law in France bans supermarkets from throwing away or destroying unsold food. Instead, the food will be donated to food banks and charities.

This is great news for the climate, too. If food waste was its own country, it would be the 3rd largest contributor to greenhouse gases after China and the United States.  

France is the first country in the world to instate such a ban. Hopefully other nations will follow suit.
