I was hoping that bringing up the topic of Freeganism
would start more of a discussion than just is it
stealing or not. Think about it: all of us pay higher
prices for goods, because the companies factor in the
“loss” of all that perfectly good stuff they throw
away. Companies are not the only guilty ones either.
When I was in college, I was appalled every May to see
what kids threw out when they left campus. Furniture,
microwaves, books. I don’t think individuals “dumpster
diving” is the most efficient or preferable way to
deal with all this waste. I think a better way to deal
with it would be a real free store – bring your goods
that you don’t want, take what you do want. Now that’s
a free market society I could stand behind!
