Freegan Sledding.

Last semester in my Persuasion class we spent a few of our class meetings discussing the subculture of Freegans. I found this subculture extremely interesting. The definition of a Freegan, according to is: “Freegans are people who employ alternative strategies for living based on limited participation in the conventional economy and minimal consumption of resources,” (source). Freegans like to use what others throw away, basically they live as close to a free lifestyle as possible. A popular Freegan activity includes dumpster diving.

That snowboard was found in a dumpster and that chair was a free find also. (In fact that entire apartment that you see above was furnished completely with free, or borrowed, furniture). With the chair’s legs broken off we attached it to the snowboard and had ourselves a Freegan sled. Conveniently Cedar City received a load of snow one night, so a few good people and I went Freegan sledding down the street.

Way good winter activity.
