There is so much surplus bread being created in the UK every year, that homeless shelters can’t even take in any more loafs destined for the trash.

That’s why this brewing company has a delicious solution for their country’s food waste problem.

Toast Ale is a UK-based craft beer company that has created a tasty beer recipe that is made out of bread saved from landfills. The founder, food waste activist Tristram Stuart, makes sure that 100% of the proceeds go towards Feedback, a charity dedicated to stopping food waste and hunger worldwide.

Toast is so dedicated to ending food waste that they have even made their bread beer recipe available for free online.

The company has recently taken to Indiegogo in order to fund their expansion into America.

According to the crowdfunding page, over one third of fresh bread that is made in the United States goes straight from the oven to the landfill. The company hopes to divert at least 100 tons of bread from landfills in the next three years, which is the equivalent of saving 40 cars worth of CO2 emissions from the atmosphere.

Their $30,000 goal will fund the production of 31,000 gallons of beer at Toast’s new location in New York City starting in July.
