Are You a Freegan?

A freegan is someone who dumpster dives for food out of want more than necessity. Oprah had a show on it and it totally blew my mind that people were okay with taking home milk, bread, vegetables, meat, etc... that they had found in the trash to eat. There is no way. If I were homeless than I would probably dumpster dive, but I am not, so I won't be doing it. Do you know anyone who does this?

  1. I actually wrote a paper on this in college once. It's an interesting lifestyle, isn't it? I know a lot of freegans have "rules" as far as what food is spoiled or not, but they believe that our country is very wasteful and there is clean, edible food that we're just throwing away. I, personally, could NEVER do that unless I had no other access to food.

  2. Our journey has begun!… secretly though

    If I’ve left you this message, you’re a follower of my original blog ~OR~ just someone I’ve happened upon while sending out these invites and that I would LOVE for to come along for the ride! Though I won’t be revealing who I am just yet – until we’re TO and THROUGH the first trimester! Just getting the word out about our new site – further explanation of all the secrecy and what we’re about on my first post. I’d love for you to stop by.

    Exciting things going on around here!

  3. I saw that Oprah too! It blew me away! The husband and I are both teachers and he is going to talk about it in his Economics class this fall. I can't imagine!

  4. I wrote an entire post on this when the episode first aired a year ago or so! Too funny! Nice to "meet you" by the way. Do we have a connection of friends?
