That’s exactly what Jeremy Seifert asks you to do in the film Dive. Why? We live in a wasteful society.
Every year 96 billion pounds of food are thrown out in the United States. Worse, only one half of food prepared gets eaten.
That’s a lot of wasted food. Dive examines the food system, where the waste is happening (every step of food production and consumption), and how to address the problem as an individual by becoming a freegan. The word freegan is compounded from “free” and “vegan”. Vegans are people who avoid products from animal sources or products tested on animals in an effort to avoid harming animals. Freegans take this a step further by being radical anti-consumers and regularly gleaning food and other items for free by dumpster diving or trash picking.
