Dumpsterdiving

For the duration of Precious Plastic Version 4 the entire team followed a vegan diet as we see this as the most sustainable way of sourcing energies for sapiens. Yes, and proteins for the skeptics! On top of this, we strived to buy as much as we could from organic sources, always trying to find the most local option to avoid unnecessary shipping pollution, and of course buying in bulk to reduce our waste to the maximum. ⁣

And lastly we got into regular dumpster diving to prevent perfect food from going to waste. Hard to believe the mountains of food consciously thrown away from supermarkets.⁣
⁣⁣
Massive big up our chefs for bringing in joy and delight in our intense working days.
