SAVE MORE BREAD! | ‘De Tweede Jeugd’ is even more fanatic in trying to avoid bread waste

13-8-2018

Every single day, more than 400.000 loafs of bread are being thrown away. At ‘De Tweede Jeugd’ (the Second Youth) they think that this is a big waste! That’s why they try to save as much bread as they can, by making the best Supertostis you’ve ever tasted! In October 2016 Manuel and Benjamin opened their first ‘Bread outlet’ at the Jan Evertsenstraat in Amsterdam. Both have been chefs and want to fight food waste. Now they have their own Tostibar at the NDSM-wharf where they sell their Supertosti’s and Crostini. The people from Amsterdam can order their tosti’s at twenty retailers in the city. In total they already saved about 14.000 loafs of bread by now. Their ambition is to give a second life to all leftover bread from the 11 stores of bakery chain BBROOD by the end of 2018. That’s why they started their crowdfunding. lees verder

In March the second luxury capsule hotel of ‘The Millennials’ brand opened in Tokyo. Following the huge success of their first iteration, opened last year in Kyoto.
