A Quick Update…

A lot of time has passed since the last post. Still, a lot has happened the memory of what stayed on FaceBook. I will post some updates here, and, along with dumpster diving, the blog will focus more on zero waste, minimal ecological footprint and sustainable living. I will write about my personal experiences and ideas, things that happen in Budapest, as well as any cool ideas, events, things happening in the world and related to freegan lifestyle and waste reduction.

Dumpster Diving in Budapest in the Media

kukaIn 2010 journalists from decided to make a video about dumpster diving and then cooking the dumpstered vegetables. The dumpster diving took place in the Central Market in Budapest. The journalist and the cameraman were following us while we were fishing for veggies from the market’s dumpsters. The journalist also joined the dumpster diving. After that one person from the group invited the cameraman and the journalist home, where they cooked a nice meal from the dumpstered food.

I Love Trash Film

I Love Trash is a documentary about dumpster diving. Two friends decide to do an experiment in trash. They rent an unfurnished apartment and arrive with only the clothes they are wearing and a flashlight. They decide not to buy any things for 3 months and instead to find all their needs in the trash. They furnish their apartment lavishly. They eat decadently. They dress sharp, and create beautiful art, all from the trash.

I Love Trieste

Welcome to dumpster diver’s paradise! Trieste, an Italian city on the border with Slovenia has a lot of treasure for the dumpster divers. Trash bins are full of food and stuff. Several hours walk may result in kilos of free stuff in your hands. The way we managed to carry all the stuff we dumpstered back to Budapest is still a mystery. It was like 2 persons + 10 bags + 5 cars = Budapest.

Sziget Festival

Some people go to Sziget festival to enjoy the music and have fun, some (who usually have no money to be wasted for this commercial mainstream fest) go there for a different reason.

Thursday Evening Walk


After talking about food waste and hunger, I decided to put into practice one of the topics I covered during the presentation, namely dumpster diving in Budapest. As usual, Thursday is a dumpster diving day.

Recently I noticed that a lot more people compared to the previous year go in the streets and dumpster dive. It would be interesting to observe what they search for, as depending on their needs they are searching either for food, or stuff to sell or metal beer cans (to exchange them for money), or to find something interesting (this is what I am doing).
