In developed countries, food with an expiring date is discarded mercilessly in an unbelievable amount. In the United States alone, 30% to 40% of the food produced goes to waste. Because of this, both in the USA and in Europe, a movement known as dumpster diving (“diving in dumpsters”, in free translation) became known and has been gaining followers. Initially, the “divers” were looking for edible food, thrown away by supermarkets and restaurants. Over time, they also began to look for clothing, furniture, cosmetics, appliances and electronics.
Apparently, some engage in this for a living, selling the most valuable items they find in the trash; others consider the dumpster diving a hobby that can generate some income. On the social network Reddit, even a community was created in which Internet users share their findings. After checking some pictures, the incredible.club he was amazed at how futile the consumer society is, literally throwing away gold and money. This post will show you how many amazing objects end up being discarded. But looking on the bright side, many take this valuable “trash” home, taking action that could rid the Earth of tons of waste.
