Dumpster diving; 2009's fastest growing industry

Green (Living) Review

They rescue furniture, clothes, household goods and even food cast off by others as a way to exit what they see as out-of-control consumerism and corporate greed. The Freegan movement is a total boycott of the economic system and its profit motive, and long may it continue, I hasten to add. It has been done before by others in other times and it is also the idea of creating an alternative community to one of consumerism and capitalism.
