Ever heard of them?
Apparently, they are vegans (or at least vegetarians) who search others' garbage cans for produce and goods. They want to reduce the waste in this country (and in other countries as well, I assume) by "recycling" (or simply using) what some people would deem refuse.
This used to be called "dumpster diving", I think. Or maybe that's entirely different.
Can anyone out there enlighten us about freeganism? I've checked a variety of websites for info, but I'd enjoy hearing more "first hand" accounts or knowledge.
