A craft beer company, Toast Ale, is using a savory innovation to address the issue of food waste in the U.K., where 24 million slices of bread end up in trash bin every year. The company sources unsold, surplus bread from bakeries and brews a delicious beverage for conscious drinkers.

Social entrepreneur Tristram Stuart, who came up with this idea, has already diverted 7,000 pounds of bread from the landfill in the U.K., writes Paste.

All the profits from the campaign are channeled to Stuart’s organization, called Feedback, which seeks to end food waste at every level of the food system, notes Design Boom.
