food waste

Ever since I came here, I was eager to try trash diving at least once during my studies here in Denmark. If I told this to my friends back in Prague, they would just give me disgusted looks and I would be the weird girl who sneaks out in the middle of the night just to get some free food. I have read many articles and forums and learned about the unwritten rules of trash divers, took silicone gloves that we have in our dorms for cleaning and went with my friend C. on a mission.

I felt weird, I'm not going to lie but when we reached the containers and met fellow students from our uni who helped us a little bit was fun after all. The other supermarket has just emptied the container so the packs of pasta that were lying on the bottom were impossible to reach...too bad. But anyway...we ended up with many goodies; bananas, avocados, bread. I didn't take much, because I know that some people need it more than me.  Yet I think I will definitely try it again because it's food! Perfectly good food for free.

So if you're in DK or any other country where it's possible to try trash diving give it a go and you won't regret :).

All my prayers to Paris.

I wouldn't imagine a scene like that! That must have been a real experience but I strongly recommend if you please beware of "trespassing" signs:D You know, some containers may be more appealing than the others but "out of reach":D
