BuyMeBy Saves Food from the Landfill with Discounts as Expiration Dates Loom

(FastCompany) New Yorker Carlos de Santiago … has a plan to prevent food from going to waste. It doesn't require a law, and it could even save you money. De Santiago and four colleagues are developing an online service, called BuyMeBy, which allows stores to publish discounts on items that are approaching their expiration date.
The closer to the date, the lower the price; but at least the store makes some money, rather than throwing the food out after it expires. (BuyMeBy is working on a formula for the rates of discount, but wasn't ready to share details yet.) Shoppers could check for deals nearby on a mobile app or look up marked-down groceries online and book delivery from the store or a service like Delivery.com.
