Did you ever hear of “freegans”? Freegans started to appear in America in the 1990s. Now many people called themselves freegans. Teachers, office workers,and even businesspeople enjoy the freegan way of life. They don’t buy things. They use things again and again. They even look through the garbage to find something to use.
When some people don’t like the color of their shirts,they throw them away. Freegans pick them up and wear them or give them to poor people. In this way, there will be less garbage and people don’t need to make new things. Freegans think this is a way to save the earth.
Next time when you are going to throw something out,think about those freegans. Maybe you will change your mind,and at the same time, change your life.
