      Interesting that you brought that up. Personally, I’ve never thought of it as stealing, because someone put it in the dumpster. However, the police thought differently when he saw my adult sontake some wood scrapsfrom a dumpster (he was making a project with his little brothers). He was charged with criminal theft!

      regardless of whether or not it’s sitting out for the trash. Stealing is stealing, and it’s trespassing.

      Subject: Budget101.com : Freegan – as seen on Oprah

      I just watched an Oprah show I had previously recorded. It was about
      the idea of Freeganism – people who choose to live outside of our
      consumer culture, acquiring things they need through alternative
      methods like dumpster diving.

      I’m curious about other people’s reaction to the show, if you saw it. I
      hadn’t heard the term Freegan before. They didn’t even mention
      Freecycle during the
      show.

      This website has more info. on the Freegan lifestyle:

      They strike me as extremists, and it’s pretty depressing to read their
      rationale for their lifestyle. However, I do think there is merit in
      pursuing these ideals to a certain extent. To each their own.
