The Green Changemakers
JANUARY 28, 2011
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. The word freegan is compounded from “free” and “vegan”. Therefore, freegans choose not to use cars for the most part.
