Dumpster diving; 2009's fastest growing industry
Green (Living) Review
MARCH 16, 2009
There are thousands of people that regularly go through dumpsters in the United States, They call themselves freegans, or Dumpster divers. The Freegan movement is a total boycott of the economic system and its profit motive, and long may it continue, I hasten to add. The Freegan movement in the USA has all kinds of people in it, not just the Hippie kind of old. To put it another way, Freegans are the conscientious objectors of capitalism.
