This is a growing movement...
"freegans", they call themselves
they base their lives on trying not waste things..and to use things they see others discard, wastefully...

what people must do is stop going to restaurants and such shit because those are the biggest food wasters in history.
If humans stops wasting food then this world would be alot healthier and cleanr and less people would complain, including myself.

Since most people are stuck in their own little world no matter what it is I don´t hang out much these days.
It´s gotten boring.

i just threw out some used coffee grounds this morning ... have to see if they're still in the bag in the dumpster when i get home

didn't we used to call these people 'dumpster-divers'? and before that 'garbage-pickers'? lmao ... oh for the carefree pre-pc-thug days when you could call a spade a ... well ... a spade 😛

sorry, got off on a tangent there lmao ... i was talking to an old guy at my new apartment complex, i mean old, like 90, and he using terms that i hadn't heard since my grandfather died lmao ... it was completely inappropriate and comical all at once ... i'm kind of looking forward to getting old so i can say what i want and everyone will go 'well, don't get upset ... he's old ... he'll die soon'

🙂

take care :)

I was an avid dumspter diver back in my day

an article,,
"Good Food, Old Food'
http://journalism.nyu.edu/pubzone/livew ... e/post_18/

so much good food is wasted because of man made, lawsuit fearing experation dates..
meanwhile so many in the wolrd starve..it's disgusting

some grouos are popping up and saying "let's donate this stuff to food banks and homeless shelters..instead of wasting it"
Food that has expire that day is shipped off to food pantrys to be served right away..on that last precious day..of offical "goodness"...there are plenty that want it..need it

for what?
not caring?

If so..I agree

truth is..in modern society..because people aren't having kids..and folks are living longer..there are more older folks than younger..truth is..if those older folks don't want to be sent off on an iceberg to die (innuit/eskimos style)..they need to make sure the one's coming up behind them are taken care of..what goes around..eventually comes around

I actually am terrified for the future..there are so many people with autism..that will need taking care of..there will be so many elderly that will need taking care of..I don't see how the young and HEALTHY..out of sheer frustration and desperation...will not come up with some kind of hitlerish..extermination/euphogenics program ("Soilant Green is people!")...they won't have a choice.."survival of the fittest"..eventually...I fear for me..and my kid..in the "brave New Wolrd" that's coming

it could have been different...oh well

I never waste beer. I'll drink it warm before I throw it out.
