Philosophy Wire: Food, Garbage, responsibility (?)

αρχείο λήψηςPhilosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2013-02-12]: It is not poverty that inspires a growing number of young Germans like 21-year-old student Benjamin Schmitt to forage for food in the garbage, but anger at loss and waste which the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization estimates at one-third of all food produced worldwide, every year, valued at about $1 trillion. [source: web news] In environmentally aware, cost-conscious Germany, "foodsharing" is the latest fad, using the Internet to share food recovered from supermarket bins while it is still in good condition. If we stop caring about "what others will say" we can do great things. I personally declare my weakness to do so... Or maybe I like my mpiftekia (burgers) not to smell garbage. Who knows...
