YEASTERDAY (in Dutch a combination
of yeast and yesterday)
Each day, 435.000 loaves of bread are
thrown away in the Netherlands. This
counts up to 380 kilograms a year! All
these loaves are deposited or are used to
feed animals. Whilst actually this bread
could be given a second life.
“YEASTERDAY” takes action against the
bread oversupply and fabricates platters,
cocktail shelves and cutting plates from
old bread. These platters are shaped like
the yeast organism to visualise the new
life of the old loaves of bread.
Bread will be cut and buttered on these
platters, so things have come full circle.
Yesterday’s bread is the plate of tomorrow!
