People who are interested in recycling and waste reduction should be interested in the “freegan” movement or freeganism — an approach to living premised on the idea that one can, if one is determined, meet a lot of life’s necessities without using money. Freeganism encompasses everything from reusing a galss jar for something else to, well, dumpster diving!
A woman by the name of Carrie Oakley sent me the link to an article on her website entitled “Recycled Reads: 50 Freegan Living Blog Posts We Can All Learn From” ( http://www.onlinecolleges.org/recycled-reads-50-freegan-living-blog-posts-we-can-all-learn-from ).
This article is potentially something that will interest our magazine’s audience. I suggest you follow the link and read up on this interesting alternative way of thinking and living. Even if you do just a bit of it, you’ll save money and tread more lightly on this earth.
