You simply need to install this two browser extensions and click on x pop up when registration is requested.

Extra IT - Too Good To Go - Buy Unsold food (close to expiration date) in a "magic box"

Globally, more than ⅓ of food is wasted.
Food waste is responsible for 10% of greenhouse gases, and we use a landmass the size of China to produce food we end up throwing away.

Too Good To Go App allows you to buy unsold products (close to their expiration date) in a "magic box" container.

This opportunity give you two great advantages:
  1. Dramatically decreases wasted and not eaten food.
  2. Money savings  (boths sellers and buyers)
  • Download app (Android Apple), register, order unsold food (of the day) and retire it at the shop (using magig box)

La produzione del cibo è responsabile del 10% dell'emissioni di gas serra prodotte a livello mondiale.

Inoltre circa 1/3 del cibo viene sprecato

Too Good To Go permette di ritirare il prodotto invenduto (e vicino alla scadenza) in una magic box.

In questo modo si avranno due vantaggi:

  1. Ridurre il cibo sprecato (con importanti effetti sull'ambiente)
  2. Risparmio economico sia per i venditori che per gli acquirenti.

Basta scaricare la app (Android - Apple), registrarsi, ordinare l'invenduto del giorno e, con magic box, ritirare l'invenduto del giorno presso il negozio.
