Destined to turn into the bible for a daring new way of life of eco-minded those who are making a way of life out of recycling, reusing, and repurposing instead of purchasing new.
an exhilarating new move is afoot that brings jointly environmentalists, anticonsumerists, do-it-yourselfers, bargain-hunters, and treasure-seekers of all stripes. you will see it within the huge, immense acclaim for many web content: hundreds of thousands of usa citizens are breaking unfastened from the want-get-discard cycle during which we're at the moment generating nearly 245 million a whole bunch waste on a daily basis (that's 4.5 kilos according to individual, according to day!).
In The Scavengers' Manifesto, Anneli Rufus and Kristan Lawson invite readers to find probably the most pleasurable (and reasonably cheap) methods there's to head eco-friendly. even if it's refurbishing a discarded wood door right into a dining-room desk; discovering a bicycle on freecycle.org; or giving a neighbor who simply had a toddler that lovable never-used teddy undergo your baby didn't bond with, during this publication Rufus and Lawson chart the background of scavenging and the world-changing environmental and non secular implications of "Scavenomics," and provide readers a framework for adopting scavenging as a philosophy and a manner of life.
