People of Purpose

Connecting people to their unique human experience through Purpose.

Jan 15, 2018

Adam and Sam are 25-year-old freegans. They eat food going to waste and buy vegan only when necessary. They haven’t bought groceries since November 5th, 2016. They describe themselves as thoughtful and mindful. They try to focus on what’s important and cut out things that don’t matter in every aspect of their lives. They accomplish their purpose by repurposing food and objects going to waste to mindfully appreciate what they have and fight a culture of rampant overconsumption. Adam and Sam see consumerism, mindlessness and waste are interconnected. Roughly 40% of food goes to waste, thrift stores are packed with perfectly good clothes, and usable furniture gets thrown out every day. With climate change already impacting everyone, Adam and Sam see buying new products as destructive. Adam and Sam don’t buy things for the sake of having variety but rather out of necessity. As a result, they are appreciative and grateful for what they already have.
