Dumpster Diving: The Freegan Movement

Freegan Movement

Meet an individual who identifies as “freegan” to find out how dumpster diving is a way of sustainable living for some people and cuts down on excess in the landfills too. Going through dumpsters in a respectful, non-messy manner often yield foods recovered, like bags of potato chips, and are still edible for the whole family. We follow a “freegan” to learn more about the movement.
