Eat With Your Head

You’ll just have to make a second trip for that soft serve

Via Grist, (a fun and informative environmental news site, if you can tolerate all those excruciating puns), colleges have started to ban trays as a way to reduce water use (less washing) and food waste and maybe even obesity (I think we all know about the use-a-smaller-plate trick).

To me this is the exact sort of elegant solution that government needs to adapt on a larger scale. Increasing efficiency is the fastest and easiest way to solve climate change and all our environmental problems. I believe from my personal experience that such a ban would reduce food waste too. I know for certain I used to eat more food than I needed to in college in an attempt to fill out the tray. Plus, clearly, cafeteria trays = freshmen 15. No more trays, no more sudden, perplexing weight gain!

It’s a win-win.
