I was watching The Colbert Report last night and he mentioned this New York Times article about freegans. They aim to lessen their impact on the planet and buy nothing to minimize their support of corporations. Freegans pick through dumpsters and garbage bins to find food, clothing, books, etc. Speaking as a germophobe, this seems extreme to me. Everything uses up natural resources to manufacture and distribute. However, I understand their motivation and applaud their commitment. Scavenger hunt anyone?
