Freegans or Dumpster divers, are people who attempt to live an ethical lifestyle by reusing trash. They basically abhor consumerism and try to avoid it at all costs. What do you think of freeganism? Would you eat your dinner from a dumpster?

I've never done it, but I know people who have. I think I'd need someone to show me where the best places to go are. I like the idea of it since a lot of perfectly good food is wasted every day.
If starving yes.

What do I think of it....well I do not like the idea of human beings eating from the garbage bin.It really upsets me.
Not in 2014...should anyone have to eat like this, it really makes me want to cry.
It sounds like they're doing it not out of necessity but out of choice. It makes an interesting statement and probably makes observers rethink the amount of food they waste, but there are probably better ways to make the same statement

I don't like the idea of it. I wouldn't like to see good food got to waste but dumpster diving is a practice in which I would not indulge.
A lot of perfectly good food (in containers) is thrown out. Other goods such as clothes are also ditched. Many shops lock their bins to prevent anyone taking it away. I'd love to be able to survey the waste...so much going to landfill. Very sad.
Gross. But maybe one day I'll try it. Hopefully I never *have* to.
Ummmmm. No lol

I hate rampant consumerism but I love fresh food. I just buy as much local food as I can.
No I wouldn't but I dislike waste, too. Each to their own.
I like the idea and agree with the sentiments about all the shops chucking out what is otherwise good food, but don't have the nerve to do it, or a car to take what I do find - I'd be restricted to what I could carry in the shopping jeep.
I would take the food from the supermarket or bakery directly. I would not take the risk of eating food from the public trash bin. I do not know if chemical or bio waste was dumped there.

Only fools,& the starving would eat from a rubbish bin!
There're places hungry persons' can go to & get a good hot, cooked meal for a few cents or no cost.

So much 'food poisoning' in the news of late, WHY would you? Totally daft idea!
I would not eat food from a dumpster. But for some people it is an option. A very risky option.
Well . . . needs, must. BUT . . before I went doing what he is doing in the pic . . . . I would get gloves! I suppose we would all do what we had to to survive and feed our kids. They could also send a lot of that "not quite so good" food to animal shelters. I HATE that these things never get done :((
