Zero Waste Uppsala discovered this app and loves their values!!
It all started when a young woman named Tessa wanted to move from Switzerland to Great Britain. Everything was planned but unfortunately she ended up with some food leftovers she couldn’t finish or fit in her luggage. She refused to throw it away so she was looking for the woman who usually begs in front of the grocery store. But as fate has it, she wasn’t there. So Tessa was thinking, maybe her neighbours want some of her perfectly fresh yoghourts, cabbage or sweet potatoes? Standing in front of the door she didn’t dare to ring the bell, afraid of getting a “no”. But Tessa overcame her own fear and found a solution.
With her new app OLIO you can get food directly to the people who want and need it! So now, not only Tessa but also you and your friends can benefit! You are leaving for some days and have some leftovers? Just open the app, add a photo, a description, the place and time for pick-up and soon your tasty leftovers find someone who values them!
Are we all getting started? Uppsala is ready for the challenge to stop the food waste, right?!
