Making the best of waste.

I was eating lunch in Ikea the other day and had a funny conversation. I asked a cafeteria employee about waste and they said that it seemed the most obvious waste she saw was people taking too many maple syrup packages and leaving them unopened on their tray; they cannot be reused once they’ve been in the hands of a customer.

It seems that most of us are much more comfortable with taking too much and throwing half of it away than taking the risk of having to get more after sitting down; it’s sad.

I suggested that while they couldn’t serve the syrup to customers again, they could put it to use and make maple syrup hooch for their staff parties….they could even give it an Ikea-esque name like Tipply.
