'Throw away' replaces 'take away' for Danish restaurant
COPENHAGEN (AFP) - A restaurant serving dishes made from food about be thrown away by supermarkets and other companies opened its doors in Copenhagen on Tuesday.
"We had all worked in kitchens or supermarkets and seen how much food was thrown away, and we wanted to do something about it," said Ms Sophie Sales, a co-founder of "Rub og Stub", which translates as "lock, stock and barrel".
Denmark is already home to an active community of "freegans", people who eat discarded edible food to reduce waste. But unlike activists, Rub og Stub won't go rummaging through trash to find its ingredients, and the restaurant doesn't accept food that's been found through so-called dumpster diving.
Instead, they're trying to get to the food before grocery stores and other retailers throw it out.
