Freegan in my hometown !

I wrote about Freegan a while ago. For anyone who just stumbled upon this blog or missed my last entry on the Freegan, you can read more about Freegan in my last post.

When I was back in Kelantan, I stumbled upon a Freegan in my hometown in Pasir Mas. Since it was during a broad daylight, at first I thought the guy is throwing trash into the big trash bin but since he’s taking his time “throwing”, I decided to take a closer look.

Form my observation, instead of throwing something, the guy actually getting something from the big trash bin. I can see he’s digging up some vegetables (notably some cucumbers and cabbages) from the dump site. I took out my trusty old w800i and snapped a picture. I did bring along my DSC-T2 but didn’t use it since I don’t want to look to obvious!

Here’s the picture of the guy doing some Freegan activities. I can’t get a close-up but you can tell from the picture that he’s digging up the trash.


It makes me wonder if the life quality in my hometown has degraded so much since the last time I’m around? Maybe it’s because the cost of living nowadays that made this guy took this kind of life? After all, I doubt he ever knows about the Freegan philosophy. The only thing I think the guy knows is how to survive in today’s world and fed his family as much as he needs to.

  • huh…kita tgok dr sudut berbeza pula
    budaya masyarakat kita yang sering ‘makan tak abis’
    buang dlm tong…. ( saya paling geram bab ini – terutama dlm majlis rasmi )
    kita tidak langsung menghargai ‘rezeki’ yg dikurniakan…

    bukan kita…orang lain..hehehe

  • When I was driving around Jakarta last year I cam upon some people picking up left overs from the garbage bin or area and upon asking I found out that those are not for eating but are for selling to those who produce cheap or imitation food such as chili sauce or tomato sauce and these products are sold to street hawkers and therefore, the can afford to sell their food cheaply… since then, I do not simply buy food from any street hawkers in Jakarta or any part of Indonesia anymore. I only buy food from places that are recommended by people.

    As for this guy, I am not sure what he will be using that for. May be you should have followed him further. LOL!
