Re: Veganmav eats his food out of the trash: discuss

Vegan do you also cheat like destroying packages and pick em up after closing time or do you follow the etiquette wich doesn't allow that?

I do it while travelling, it's a principle thing, ridiculous what people throw away, and even more ridiculous that it's illegal to take it in most countries. Oh and free travel is always nice.

Re: Veganmav eats his food out of the trash: discuss

Well, I don't destroy packages, usually not really necessary. Yeah if I'm in a different city, I often hit up the dumpsters in that city. Indianapolis, cincinnnati, washington DC, Austin Tx. all have great dumpsters

veganmav could teach most people in bbv some lessons about life.
but the ones we wish would listen, are never going to hear.

you're right that he has explained his reasons coherently, but i disagree they are explained convincingly.
I guess veganmav just doesn't live up to your standards...oh well...I think many of the people posting here have some things to think about...the negative tone in many of these posts is very disappointing

Re: Veganmav eats his food out of the trash: discuss

WTF, dumpster diving is super standard. I used to do it all the time when I was living in a building that had a grocery store on the ground floor. I'd still do it if I weren't such a lazy bastard..

High five Veganmav!

Re: Veganmav eats his food out of the trash: discuss

I read the whole thread and I am very impressed by veganmav's choice of life but also bewaring dignity in light of those stupid attacks by some, good to see not all are as primitive.

How are you veganmav? How is life, hope all is well with you and you could get some of your locked money (not sure where your funds are frozen)?
Are you in China at the moment?

I thought of this documentary We Feed the World! while reading, which could shed some more light for some on the topic of food, waste of food and why hunger is not a natural rule but a symptom of ever increasing greed of a system few dare to question like OP.
For example, did you know a town of 1.7 million inhabitants wastes daily bread which would suffice for a town of 300,000?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daxZBAOviCg We Feed the World!

Unfortunately original in German with subtitles in English, but hey, a brilliant docu for free I can promise which will not only give you plenty of free food for thought (See play of words?) but also images you might never get out of your head.

Do you know it veganmav and in case what is your opinion on it?

Quote:
WE FEED THE WORLD is a film by Austrian filmmaker Erwin Wagenhofer about food and globalisation, fishermen and farmers, long-distance lorry drivers and high-powered corporate executives, the flow of goods and cash flow--a film about scarcity amid plenty. With its unforgettable images, the film provides insight into the production of our food and answers the question what world hunger has to do with us .

Interviewed are not only fishermen, farmers, agronomists, biologists and the UN's Jean Ziegler, but also the director of production at Pioneer, the world's largest seed company, as well as Peter Brabeck, Chairman and CEO of Nestlé International, the largest food company in the world.

Re: Veganmav eats his food out of the trash: discuss

If you could watch 'We feed the World!' without throwing up, you might as well be able to watch Darwins nightmare - Winner Best European Documentary 2004 (Link to youtube) to see the same principle at work, with even more drastic details.
From Wikipedia:
Quote:
The appalling living and working conditions of the indigenous people, in which basic sanitation is completely absent and many children turn to drugs and prostitution, is covered in great depth; because the Nile perch is fished and processed for export, all the prime fillets are sold to European supermarkets, leaving the local people to survive on the festering carcasses of the gutted fish. As to why the local fish can't be sold to the domestic market to counter the impending famine (local news reports relayed in the film indicated Northern and Central Tanzania were facing famine), one fish processing factory manager explains "it is too expensive".
