The freegan lifestyle has been getting a lot of presstime lately and has also shocked a lot of television viewers. Oprah dedicated one whole show to freeganism and other networks have run specials on these people who ravage the dumpsters of grocery and other retail stores to get “free stuff.”
This week my guest is Carrie Lauth from Natural Moms Talk Radio and she has done quite a bit of research on the topic. She said that the freegan lifestyle is really a backlash against a wasteful, commercial-driven society that doesn’t care about the earth’s resources or filling up its landfills. By adopting this lifestyle, freegans are reusing perfectly good items.
Listen in as Carrie offers other ideas of where to “shop” for free items. Freegan living is not strictly devoted to only getting free food!
