Netizens express anger after seeing two loaves of unopened bread in a garbage truck! What a waste of precious food…
As COVID-19 spread in many parts of the world, a lot of people went panic-buying, hoarding as much as they could afford to buy so they will have food and essentials in the coming days. Sadly, this left many supermarket shelves empty, leaving very little choices for others to buy.
Throwing Away Hoarded Food
A lot of people bought as many food as they could put inside the cart! But many failed to remember that there are foods with a short shelf life. Bread was among the items that were sold out quickly in many places (not including alcohol, masks, and hand sanitizers, of course). Sadly, bread has a short shelf life and could already have molds in just a few days.
Recently, netizens were angered after seeing two loaves of unopened bread in a garbage truck. It is not known from whose household the bread had come from, but this picture was taken in Banting, a town in Malaysia.
From the looks of the bread inside the plastic bag, the individual plastic packs appear full and unopened. This means that the bread expired even before the buyer and his/her family even got to consume it! What a waste of food!
A lot of people were crying in the supermarkets upon seeing that there is nothing else for them to buy, yet many were hoarding supplies that are now going to waste.
Lack of Morality
Many netizens condemn the actions of whoever did this, saying that this person lacks morality. Others said that this should be a reminder for us all to buy only what we need, making sure to leave some food for others – especially items like bread that we might just throw away because it expires quickly.
Buy what you need and only what you can consume.
What is Hoarding?
Hoarding is the excessive accumulation of items, regardless of their actual value. This is often experienced during times of impending disaster as people try to stock up on perceived needs in panic.
