DPT--Connecting in the Community

If you want to make connections in your community, there are a bundle of online resources to help this happen:
  • Freegans. From their site: "Freegans are people who employ alternative strategies for living based on limited participation in the conventional economy and minimal consumption of resources".
  • Meet Up. There are 47,905 meet up groups in 112 countries that allow people with similar interests to get together and discuss everything from ghost tracking to Spanish language practice to investors groups to pug aficionados.
  • Freecycle. Whether you need something or want to give something away, this is the website that allows you to connect with people in your community.
  • Craigslist. Much like old fashioned bulletin boards at college or your local grocery store, Criagslist is the new fashioned bulletin board listing everything from work to housing to ride shares and a whole bunch of other stuff.

  1. The freegan way of life has its merits in the world of today where the powers that be seek control over every aspect of our lives, everything is owned and exploited.
