Monday Night, August 22nd-- Freegan Trailblazing -- The CNN folks are curious about how freegans find toiletries and the like-- and we've been talking for awhile about wanting to do some new exploration (and hey, we can all use some extra toothpaste), so we are gonna take them around as we try to root out some good sites to find soap and toothpaste and the like. As usual we are asking them to focus on the trash, not the stores, to avoid retailer backlash.
We'll be meeting at the southwest corner of 10th St and 6th Ave in
Manhattan at 9:30 PM. We will be popping around a good bit, and may
come up dry, but this is about exploration, not harvesting from the
tried and true. All are welcome, but please be on time, because we
won't be hanging around, and please call in advance to RSVP. Adam at
(201) 968-0595 or just reply to this email.
