What we're about

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 (http://freegan.info/?page=home). 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 (http://freegan.info/freegan-directories/dumpster-directory/freegan-guide-to-new-york-city/manhattan/) and Brooklyn (http://freegan.info/freegan-directories/brooklyn/) are great resources.

Help make freeganism happen in NYC! At our organizational meetings we discuss and decide on future activities and group direction. Participants are encouraged to step up and introduce new freegan projects with the support of the group, or take roles such as facilitating meetings or bottom-lining events. We welcome both those with experience taking part in non-hierarchical consensus-based groups and those participating for the first time!

Afterwards, join us for an in-person public trash tour! We’re excited to host this trash tour, and have a safe, socially distanced event.

We will start by having a brief, newcomer-friendly talk about freeganism, before exploring the area’s wasted food and other goods. We give advice on how to salvage these goods and comment on the reasons for such waste.

For the Freeganism 101 & Trash Tour, meet at (TBD) at 9 pm ET.

If you have trouble finding us, call or text Janet at ‭(347)[masked]‬.
