Freegans and Freeganism – Viable Alternative Lifestyle?
I just heard about Freeganism and was wondering what other people thought.
Apparently the freegan lifestyle has two goals: to buys as little as possible and to buy only what one needs. Freegans normally do not shop at stores or supermarkets, they look for food. clothing and other items in dumpsters, barter in exchange, forage for wild food, share or grow their own vegetables. They limit their impact on the world by using fossil fuel-friendly types of transportation and recycle and compost regularly.
What are your opinions on such a lifestyle? Or are you a freegan and do you participate in the lifestyle from time to time?
