Eat delicious food and save the planet, this is the honorable purpose of the food waste app Too Good To Go.
Too Good To Go started in June 2016 and gathers so far a community of 2,288,426 users and more than 3,000 partners.
Here is more about the app that revolutionizes food waste!
The Solution to an on-going issue
According to Too Good To Go, over 10 million tonnes of food is thrown away each, that’s the weight of 190 Titanics! This huge waste is estimated to be worth £17 billion a year just in the UK. That’s £700 per family per year spent on food that ultimately just ends up in the bin.
The founders got an idea: why not collaborate with restaurants, groceries, and pastries to reduce food waste?
Then we know the story! Several tech-savvy entrepreneurs around Europe joined forces and came up with a solution: an app that lets everyone do their bit to reduce waste, while also getting delicious food and supporting local businesses. The businesses get to reduce their waste and also have potential new customers to try out their food. Both contribute to a better environment. Win-Win-Win!
