Freeganism: The Art of Dumpster Diving

Okay, this is not quite hip and mainstream, but please watch this video with an open mind. It might not make you want to dumpster dive, but it certainly will teach you something about the unbelievable amount of perfectly fine food that is wasted in our society. Knowing about it is one thing, but seeing is believing. We don't have the source (anyone?), but we remember reading somewhere that about half of all food produced for humans is not eaten and ends up in landfills. Increasing efficiency in food production and distribution is a low hanging fruit (no pun intended) with much lower costs and higher benefits than increasing production. Please share your wasted food stories in the comments. ::CurrentTV - Freegans, via ::Hugg
