The Electric Commentary

Thursday, August 17, 2006

"Can I ask what you're doing?" asked the Trader Joe's employee in a Hawaiian shirt.

Meadows was caught dumpster diving, though he is neither homeless nor destitute. He considers himself a "freegan" -- a melding of the words "free" and "vegan" -- meaning he tries not to contribute to what he sees as the exploitation of land, resources and animals wrought by commercial production.

Read the whole thing if you find vegans and trash-pickers funny. Like I do.


  • In the day, we had a different term for freegans... it was "bum"
