French restaurants fighting climate change 变废为宝:法国餐厅应对气候变化

Why is food waste sent to landfill bad for the environment?


French cuisine, but not as you know it. On this idyllic-looking island on the northern outskirts of Paris, a food revolution is underway.



The team here are busy turningwaste foodfrom nearby restaurants and hotels into this stuff:compost. This is one of six urban composting sites across France, run by a social enterprise called Les Alchimistes.

这支团队正忙着把来自附近餐馆和酒店的剩菜剩饭变成这个东西:堆肥。这是法国六个城市堆肥场之一,由一家名为 Les Alchimistes 的社会企业经营。

One of the biggest problems we noticed was that 30% of the waste produced within city… within Paris was actually made oforganicwaste. This goes tolandfill, which makes no sense. We decided we could take this organic matter, which is very precious, and turn it into a solution, to turn it into compost.

我们注意到的一个最大的问题是巴黎市内产生的 30%的垃圾其实是有机垃圾。这些垃圾会被送往垃圾填埋场,这毫无道理。我们决定把这些非常珍贵的有机物质变成解决问题的办法,变成堆肥。

Compost that is then sold in bulk to farmers. This is good for the environment, because when food waste ends up in landfill, it releases methane, a powerfulgreenhouse gasthat warms up the planet.


In order to produce the compost a bit faster than you can in your garden, the team rely on industrial composters like these.


But how does the food waste get here in the first place, you might wonder. A team of cyclists is being assembled to collect the food in cities. More than sixty businesses have signed up and receive multiple visits like this one every day. This hotel was one of the first to get on board.

Our generation, we are really concerned about everything with [the] climate change and [the] waste of food.
