Kindred, in some senses.

You may have seen this in the New York Times Magazine last Sunday. It could be of interest:

The Freegan Establishment by Jake Halpern

“Kit is a freegan. He maintains that our society wastes far too much. Freeganism is a bubbling stew of various ideologies, drawing on elements of communism, radical environmentalism, a zealous do-it-yourself work ethic and an old-fashioned frugality of the sock-darning sort. Freegans are not revolutionaries. Rather, they aim to challenge the status quo by their lifestyle choices. Above all, freegans are dedicated to salvaging what others waste and — when possible — living without the use of currency.”

New York Times Magazine. Halpern, Jake. June 20, 2010.
