      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.
