As well as revulsion, freeganism has also caused a lot of outrage. What critics appear to find difficult is the idea of others living off society; we can't stand to work while others seemingly scrounge. Not working is a fundamental aspect of freeganism: as important as not buying the products of exploitative companies. Even for those at the non-freegan Forest cafe, this rejection of the retrace is an important element. "Being able to live cheaply is a very important thing, " says von Blitz. Because none of us want to work. That's the bottom line. Why work 40 hours a week to earn lots of money so that you can look forward to buying expensive food and clothes? It's suicidally stupid." Von Blitz used to be a teacher, but now splits his time between working as a kitchen manager for Forest and making music as part of the band The Very.

His admission, that he does not want to work, seems disarmingly frank.

I'll talk to her.


delokiii@goowy.com



my feeding principles used to be: find, grow, hunt.



i feel a bit like a cave man now i've said that.

2 thirds of produce in this country is thrown away.
Is feeganism a response of the concience or an act of solidarity with those that starve?
Or is it just free strawberries.


Hmm.....Yes.
up and at it.
