Family saves three years, discarded grocery lists of strangers and makes an artful collage of
Tielt Yves Verleysen and his two sons, Cas (13) and Cyr (10) have, over the past three years, a very special hobby on after. Since 2016 will save the Tieltse family discarded shopping lists that they can find in the supermarket. “We had nearly 1,500. When my wife asked me what in god's name you would begin, we decided to make a collage.”

The collection began three years ago during a visit to the neighborhood supermarket. “Under the cover of our shopping basket was still the shopping list of the customer that the cart before us had used,” explains Yves. “Cas thought it would be funny to read what that person is like, the quoted. At the same time, we are in our family greatly concerned with environmental awareness, so first, we gathered the same day, yet another shopping list that someone on the ground had thrown. That's how it started, it was a game. We went there looking for, and soon we had every day a note to take home.”

Anniversary Colruyt

After a while had the family Verleysen boxes full of shopping lists. To be the mother the woman enough took. “When my wife asked me what in god's name you wanted to start, we came up with the idea to make a collage. The Colruyt store in our neighborhood is celebrating this year happen to their five-year existence, so I stepped to the supermarktverantwoordelijke with the question of whether they do something with our project wanted to do. They were immediately excited, and this coming weekend will be dominated by us boodschappenlijstjesbord in the shop on the occasion of their anniversary.”
