Supermarkets and governments: Stop usable materials being put in dumpsters
  
  

 


Why this is important

France made the move to ban large supermarkets wasting food, and other countries should do the same.
For more information about France's move, see here: http://www.triplepundit.com/2015/05/france‐bans‐large‐supermarkets‐wasting‐food/.

Please sign this petition calling on organisations and people worldwide to reduce waste. The petition particularly calls on governments, supermarkets, and other businesses producing valuable waste to stop usable materials being put in dumpsters. Supermarkets should instead be required to do something else, such as selling usable items at a lower price, giving them to charities, or turning materials into other useful outputs such as energy and fertiliser.
