hey, i thought this would apply to this community. not a lot of mainstream population would consider themselves freegan. you should check this out if you know or are freegan and don't mind media.


Freegan.info, a group and website promoting freeganism, has gotten a
ton of media requests lately from journalists all over the country who
want to find local freegans to interview.Freeganism is a lifestyle
based around adapting practical strategies to minimize personal
consumer impact, cut financial support for the capitalist system that
is destroying the earth and human and animal lives, and create new
methods for people to survive and thrive based on sharing, mutual aid,
social responsibility, and ecological concern. Freegan practices
include dumpster diving for food, clothing, funiture, etc., squatting
buildings, guerilla gardening, train hopping, and more. If you aren't
familiar with freeganism, visit http://freegan.info. Or for a quick
definition of freeganism, visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freeganism
If you aren't sure what freeganism has to do with animal rights, visit
http://http://freegan.info/?page=ARFreegan . As many animal rights
activists have heard inaccurate descriptions of what a freegan is, you
may be surprised to learn that freeganism is a lifestyle that
powerfully reinforces animal rights ethics.)Please spread the word to
anyone you think might be interested. If you'd like to participate in a
media story in any of the towns listed below, call Adam at (201)
