Was followed today by a person today on Twitter, Secret Freegan. I had heard of the lifestyle before when I was researching being vegan back in the spring. Freegans are people who employ alternative strategies for living based on limited participation in the conventional economy and minimal consumption of resources. It really is a fascinating lifestyle.
I blogged about this today because I think its important when living your life to keep it simple. I am working to not encourage purchasing excess items to make a meal, or tons of decorative things from crazy stores on my blog. As we are moving further and further into this economic downturn I think we need to stop and take a look at what we are purchasing and why we are purchasing. I am becoming more and more conscious of this everyday.
