The Wasted Effort - Poster

This short film tells you everything that you need to know before you deiced to throw away any amount of food or clothing. Which can sometimes be purchased for large or small fees, or even can be owned without paying any fees. I wanted shed light on how something as simple as a loaf of bread must go through such an amazing process just to end up on your table. I wanted to also tell you during the process of making that bread so many people spend so much effort including the farmers and the bakers. That is why it is very important that instead of wasting that effort and bread it should be shared with another living being that needs that bread.

As I have always said “The food might not have cost you much, but it took a lot of effort and sacrifice to get to your plate.
Every piece of food thrown away adds to another man's hunger and wastes another person's labor.“
