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.

Boston-based sculptor Domenic Esposito unloaded a 10 foot long sculpture of a spoon intended to resemble the the utensil used to cook heroin in front of Purdue Pharma’s headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut. Purdue Pharma are the makers of the painkiller OxyContin, and have received a lot of criticism from legislators, regulators and relatives of the dead about their drug leading to dependency and serving as a gateway to other narcotics like heroin. ___ The spoon sculpture was unveiled Friday morning, and was removed that afternoon on orders of the police. The gallery owner, Fernando Luis Alvarez, was arrested and led away in handcuffs after refusing to move the spoon sculpture that was blocking Purdue’s driveway. “I think this is an important matter,” Mr. Alvarez said. “People are dying.” ___ Purdue spokesman, Robert Josephson said in a statement: - “We share the protesters’ concern about the opioid crisis and respect their right to peacefully express themselves.” ___ Esposito spent about six weeks rendering the spoon from steel. The artist said it was intended to reflect the experience of a relative who started to use OxyContin and Percocet experimentally before turning to heroin. ___ Photo: Gregg Vigliotti | The New York Times: CHCA U.S. NEWS OXY ART PROTEST Jun 25 | A 10 foot long sculpture made to look like a spoon used to cook heroin was unloaded outside of Purdue Pharma's headquarters Boston-based sculptor Domenic Esposito unloaded a 10 foot long sculpture of a spoon intended to resemble the the utensil used to cook heroin in front of Purdue Pharma’s headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut.
