It's a fascinating way of life, and incredibly inspiring.
I've been embarking my way towards more of a freegan lifestyle. From sheepskins, to boots, wool clothing and yarn, seashells, and down comforters- so many animal products are being wasted, tossed as garbage and filling our landfills. It's upsetting to think of animals having their lives taken from them, just to have their products end up as trash. On the other hand, it's rewarding to rescue these items, appreciate them, respect the lives that provided them, and give the items new life and purpose in our homes. Search the thrift stores, search freecycle, search craigslist, I have found so many items that would have otherwise been discarded and added to our landfills.
Freeganism truly is a fascinating concept.
