Let Me Get You a Spoon

When we were kids, if my brother or I used an extravagant amount of ketchup and wasted most of it, my stepdad would hand the waster a spoon. It didn’t take long to learn how much ketchup was really necessary.


This is too much.
When you think about how much stuff is wasted on a daily basis in restaurants it’s sickening. People use a handfull of napkins when a few will do. They pour out a half a bottle of ketchup or BBQ sauce for a few fries. They let their kids ruin sugar and sweetner packets and think it’s cute. They ask for half a cup of ranch to dip their fries in and leave most of it unused.

Who do you think pays for all of this waste? You do! Every time you eat outside your home, the cost of other people’s waste is figured into your bill.

So next time you are sitting beside someone and they dump a bottle of ketchup on their plate, maybe you should hand them one of these:
