A few days ago I talked about the scope of food waste in the US, today I will talk about inspiration.
Jasmine and I have been inspired…..by dumpster.
Together we will travel the country eating as high a percentage of dumpster goods as possible. Can
In essence, PermaCycle will eat trash.
Just like this guy, Rob Greenfield, check out his amazing video of how he biked across the country eating about 70% dumpstered foods.
We are not ashamed and we want your attention, we want you to know about the art of Dumpster Diving. Yup I capitalized that. Dumpster Diving will sustain us and it actually sustains me right now, damn near the entirety of my regular diet is reclaimed food.
The scope of how much good delicious FRESH food that is thrown away is literally shocking for most people when they begin to experiment with Dumpster Diving. Me included! I have thrown back lids before and found myself face to face with what looked like both the bakery and produce sections of a grocery store, nicely boxed up and waiting. Can you say: Holy grail?!
Needless to say, Jazz and I won’t be going hungry on our trip, especially helpful because we don’t have much cash to spend!
