This sentence may sound crazy, but it is a reality.
Japanese owner Yukako Ichikawa runs her restaurant Wafu in Australia in a very sustainable way. She lives in harmony with nature and believes people should be considerate about our planet´s future and should order and eat only as much as they really can. She is against any form of waste.
She informs her customers about Eat-in Policy: „vegetables and salad on the side are not decorations; they are part of the meal too“. You can leave on your plate only lemon slices, gari (sushi ginger) and wasabi.
Takeaway Policy: „bring your own reusable storage containers or plates.“ Failing to do so may result in refusal of service.

Her rules may sound far too much for western world consumers, but actually are they?
Just remember your last visit in restaurant – you probably can depict served big portions which were not finished.
Imagine how much left overs there are produced every single day. And they are thrown! Because of strict hygienic norms they can not be used for example as food for animals.
Maybe, if more Yukakos were around the globe, we would eat more healthily most likely healthier stuff (as not as much would be needed). Anyway, I still quite like her idea to fine customers for not finishing their plate .
