I am fascinated by the Freegan movement and wish that I had the courage to dumpster dive.
The waste that is around us makes me feel very angry. While some people around the world starve and maybe others (us or our neighbours) go without big shops throw food out in tons each day around the globe.
So while it's unethical on a human scale it's also highly unethical on a environmental level.
I've put some You Tube clips that you may find interesting too...
I'm very interested in what you think... This includes all you quiet lurkers...
Did you know about Freegans?
Do you dumpster dive? Or would you dare to?
What do you think of the waste around the developed world?
Our Frugal Lifestyle
- Frugal Down Under
- Passionate about eco-frugality. I used to party hard, clubbing my way from pay-packet to pay-packet. Never getting ahead, just getting by. Then came our much wanted baby with no savings in the bank - only an old car. Changes were made to our lifestyle and we didn't turn back. In the past 6yrs we purchased a flat, found employment, lived below our means, built an emergency fund, purchased a reliable car and saw the financial benefits of our frugal lifestyle. Our only debt is our mortgage. Our aim is to manage our cash flow wisely, pay off our home quickly and eventually work for pleasure, not necessity. Join us on our journey, share insights, tips and tricks to help us and others to get ahead while having a good time.
