France has become the world's first country to ban supermarket waste and compel large retailers to donate unsold food. While many charities hail the legislation, some worry about their capacity to handle the extra food. In a refrigerated room of the massive Carrefour supermarket in western Paris, director Soed Toumi points to carts piled high with food: Packs of yoghurt and pudding, slightly stale pastries, and baguettes. In a matter of hours, the food will be carted away for distribution to the needy. Legislation passed in February makes France the world's first country to ban supermarket waste and compel large retailers like Carrefour to donate unsold food – or face a fine of 3,750 euros ($ 4,230). The law is a first stab at rethinking consumption practices in a country where an estimated 7 million tons of food is thrown away each year. While consumers are the biggest culprits, restaurants and stores account for about a quarter of food waste. But when it comes to her store, Toumi says the law doesn't change much. The supermarket donates the equivalent of 320,000 meals each year to four local charities. "We've already been fighting against waste," she says. "But if the law allows others to follow our example, why not?" Not all French supermarkets boast similar practices. The average store is believed to throw away roughly 20 kilos of unsold food each day. Some have reportedly poured bleach on products, rendering them inedible – ostensibly to avoid food poisoning and legal problems.: INSTAGRAM | @IFACTS.DAILY It's illegal for supermarkets in France to waste food. Supermarkets must either compost it or donate unsold or nearly expired goods to charity.

This post is for all the awesome and loyal cats who never leave our sides when we're sick. 😺 I've been in bed most of the day with a touch of food poisoning or stomach bug and these 2 never left my side. Ginger did the same when I was downstairs this morning. 🐈 What's more amazing is that Venus is usually on top of me even if I'm laying on my side which is the last thing you want when your stomach is not right but somehow she knew. She came up behind me like she always does but instead of climbing up onto me, she put her paws on my leg and gave me a kitty massage. Then she joined Roo down at my feet & stayed right with me like they always do for anyone who gets sick and stays in bed. I LOVE my cats! 💞 Do any of you have experiences like this to share? If so I'd love to hear about it. Shout out your awesome cats or dogs and how they are amazing! 😺😻😽 catsareawesome petsareawesome fortheloveofpets loyalty love: the us sane This post is for all the awesome and loyal cats who never leave our sides when we're sick. 😺 I've been in bed most of the day with a touch of food poisoning or stomach bug and these 2 never left my side.

Today’s regular check-ups and tests are 99% right. The technology is so advanced that they will tell you that something is cooking inside your body even before the “thing” happens. My grandmother and mother weren’t lucky enough to be pregnant in this world. They didn’t even know they are pregnant until that belly started to grow. The first sign that a woman is pregnant is waiting for her period to come. However, sometimes this sign could come knocking on the door and still you could be pregnant. I wanted to get deeper with this post. I wanted to escape from the usual signs like vomiting, period, and often urination. Let’s cut to the chase and take a look at these “you are probably pregnant” signs. 1.Increased Estrogen and Progesterone Levels These two hormones will decrease or stop the menstrual bleedings. 2. Vomiting Does Not Only Happen in the Mornings Oh yeah. This is probably the main reason why people confuse morning sickness with a stomach bug or food poisoning. Being pregnant means slower digestion. 3. Swollen and Sensitive Vagina The levels of cervical mucus you produce are thicker, and the result is a very sensitive vagina. All of this comes as a result of increased progesterone levels. 4. Increased Breast Size You thought your breasts get swollen when you are in your period? – Wait until you see what happens when you are expecting. The nipples get darker as they prepare for nursing your baby. The hormones inside of you make your breasts sensitive and bigger. If you were dreaming for larger breasts, they would continue growing through the pregnancy. 5. Menstrual Cramps Outside your Period Dates It lasts a couple of days as the process of implementation occurs. It’s the time when the fertilized egg attaches to the uterus lining. 6. Going to the Bathroom. A Lot. As the body produces more blood to support you and your baby growing inside of you, it will force the kidneys to filter more. 7. You Won’t Have a Problem Falling Asleep Anywhere and Anytime Your body spends energy working all day all night to make your womb a special place for your baby. It’s normal for the body to rest more: These 11 Signs Say: You Are Probably Expecting a oto Grid Baby! Today’s regular check-ups and tests are 99% right.

Mom accidentally cooks dinner with cannabutter and gets the whole family high.: 5 r/trees Good luck OP mY ENTIRE FAMILY JUST ATE MY CANNABUTTER WHAT DO i DO?? u/Dreamblook 1d Guys my naive mother used my CANNABUTTER to make dinner with. Apparently we were out of real butter and she used mine because she though it was "vegan butter". My entire family just eat chicken made with high quality cannabutter. I have around 45 mins before it kicks in.WHAT DO I DO GUYS? Edit-Sorry about the typo in the title I was in a hurry. Edit 2-Guys I know I can just come clean and tell them. I will if it gets to the point where they are freaking out or something. I'm trying very hard to avoid them ever having to know. Edit 3-No guys I'm not going to record it and embarrass my family for karma. Edit 4-l think they are starting to feel it. Still haven't told them anything. I think l am in denial about this whole thing. Edit 5-My mother just asked me if there was anything wrong with my vegan butter. I decided to tell her it was really old, so they will all just think they have food poisoning or something. Edit 6-1 think my sister is asleep My father is in some kind of trance with a giant smile on his face. He doesn't seem to be freaking out. My mother on the other hand,is going ape shit and wants to go the hospital. My uncle keeps on trying to talk her out of it, (because no one can drive so we would have to pay for an ambulance) Edit 7-Wtf guys my uncle is barely affected and laughs his ass off every time he looks at me. I think he knows. Mom accidentally cooks dinner with cannabutter and gets the whole family high.
