Hi, I'm from Amsterdam, and very interested in free living. I already try to live free at home, but I'm looking to live free-er. Hope to join you on april 7 on the trash tour for some inspiration and ideas!
Do you want to reduce your consumer impact on earth, humans and animals? Are you concerned about the wastefulness of our consumer society? Learn how to find useable goods in the refuse of our throw-away culture, to identify wild edibles, to repair and rebuild bikes, clothing and more. Learn more about our group at our website, freegan.info. And join our mailing lists on Riseup (https://lists.riseup.net/www/home) organized by what you're interested in — events only, discussion, a spontaneous dumpster diving list, and more. Search by keyword "freegannyc".
If you are mainly interested in dumpster diving in NYC consider going on your own or in small groups rather than on our "trash tours" which are oriented more for learning than for acquisition. Our dumpster directories for Manhattan and Brooklyn are great resources.
