I am staying at the Monte Carlo Bay in Monaco. During breakfast, I came across this sign at the buffet.
I wonder if the sign is geared more towards children with the chef from Ratatouille on there and in an attempt to encourage kids not to waste food they felt the need to post this sign to remember to eat what you take.
On the other hand, I actually think that this sign is intended for adults which seem really strange for an upscale resort. Is there really a crisis of food wasting going on across the board that warrants calling it to everyone’s attention?
There is a Green Globe certified emblem as well on the sign but if I’m choosing the hotel based on that certification – wouldn’t I already not waste food as part of my belief system?
For someone like myself who isn’t necessarily crusading to save the planet but attempts to do what I can regarding proper recycling and not wasting resources, I’m not sure a sign at the buffet is going to do the trick.
It seemed out of place myself and came off more of a “don’t share your plate” at a cheap buffet rather than a call to action to conserve food.
I don’t inherently disagree with the theory of only taking what you can eat but I’m not entirely sure it’s needed to be displayed in public.
