Low econ-impact; agility round the dustbins

Loved this article from last weekend’s Observer, most esp. the bin diving neighbour who arrives at lunch with the piece of mouldy cheese.

Alex Renton rides shotgun with a band of eco-minded ‘freegans’ who plunder the bins behind the local M&S for gourmet foods. But how ethical is it? And can you get enough for a dinner party?

Asked Puffin to convert to freeganism, we’ve agreed to wait ’til the current garbage strike is over due to stench. Judging by the measly two malteser-sized tomatoes our huge tomato plant produced, sustainable living remains at a bit of a distance.
