Talking Trash: The Scavengers’ Manifesto

Talking Trash: The Scavengers’ Manifesto

  • 3 april 2009

Salon recently spent a day with authors Anneli Lawson and Kristan Rufus who have taken the spirit of DIY culture and combined it with their unique perspective on consumerism in their book The Scavengers’ Manifesto, a guide for all those intrigued by notions of reduce, reuse and recycle, but don’t necessarily want to lose out on the best that life has to offer. For the two authors, this book represents a way of life and an opportunity to take their point of view into the mainstream. This guide isn’t just about extreme activities like dumpster diving either, instead it presents a thoughtful approach to lowering your impact and living more frugally.
