From dumpster to dinner plate
It’s hard to imagine any of the commuters you will see in the centre of your city, for example, not owning a watch or a good pair of shoes or any of the other essentials to get them through the day.

Freegans are people who employ alternative strategies for living based on limited participation in the conventional economy and minimal consumption of resources. Freegans embrace community, generosity, social concern, freedom, cooperation, and sharing in opposition to a society based on materialism, moral apathy, competition, conformity, and greed.
Freeganism is a sustainable practice that’s about creating alternatives and Do-It-Yourself habits. If you need fruits or vegetables, then don’t buy those from a capitalist company that exploits animals in the farms or people on the fields. Grow your own fruits and veggies. This is the real freedom — to produce goods on your own and with your friends, to create communities consisting of mutually supportive people and relationships. Freedom, solidarity, independence — this is FREEDOM.
