One woman spearheaded Denmark’s effort to cut food waste by 25% in five years. Selina Juul founded the organization Stop Spild Af Mad (Stop Wasting Food), which convinced larger supermarket chains to discount food that would usually go wasted, and to give away food items that otherwise get tossed in the dumpster. Juul’s influence has led to the opening of Wefood in Copenhagen, a surplus supermarket that is selling products at discounts of up to 50 percent. Photo credit: Daniela De Lorenzo/The Independent
