Can you imagine the amount of food thrown away every day by New york residents? Can you imagine 270,000 lbs of grub?
Many of us can't, and so to illustrate the point City Harvest of New York filled an empty subway train with the equivalent amount of green apples and flooded the otherwise empty platform.
The images are quite amazing - click here for the video.
It would have been magic with stacks of people on the platform though. I suppose that was a little too far to stretch the Health and Safety regulations, and if London's Victoria Line is anything to go by, people would have just climbed in on top of the apples anyway and waited for the train to move on.
Visually amazing and shows exactly what could be utilised for many in need. City Harvest aim to rescue and redistribute 25 million pounds of usable grub in 2009. Amazing.
(and as Treehugger pointed out, no apples were harmed in the making of the event - here is how it was done)
Up the Freegan generation!
