I read this amazing piece of news in en.v blog that a Saudi restaurant will be fining diners who fail to finish their meals.
“Bosses at Marmar Restaurant in Dammam are said to vary the level of leftover charge depending on how much food has been left on the plate.”
“There are many clients who make large orders in order to impress the people around them and boost their social prestige,” he said, as quoted by Saudi media.
I really loved the idea! I remember posting an article about the same issue. I always feel bad if anything stayed in my plate when I`m eating outside home. I usually take my leftovers as a take away. But many people don’t. I see people ordering lots and lots of food, many stays in the plate and end up in the garbage. Applying this technique in restaurants will absolutely change people’s perspective and will reduce the waste in the same time. I know that deep inside each and every person in this world we know what we do is wrong, but all we need is a reminder, and sometimes, a FINE like this. I really wish to see this happening in Kuwait.
