Bread Brother

Bread Brother

In some areas in Rotterdam a remarkable amount of bread wastes can be found at random places on the street, parks and even on top of waste baskets.

Bread waste attract rats and other vermin.

Some people do not just throw their spare bread into the garbage due to religious reasons, for some bread may simply not be thrown away.

Titus Wybenga won the Awesome Rotterdam grant recently for his project Broodbroeder (Bread Brother).

He provides a solution without disrespecting one’s religious beliefs.

Volunteers collect bread wastes at central places a couple of times per week with a carrier cycle.

This bread waste is then made into compost and everyone is happy!
