    Millennials go dumpster-diving in Singapore in the name of 'freeganism'

    The subculture known as freeganism has gained fans among millennials in Singapore, inspiring them to ignore their parents’ warnings and get their hands dirty – literally. A freegan is defined as someone who rejects consumerism and seeks to reduce waste, especially by retrieving and reusing discarded items, often in dumpsters. Currently, there is a Facebook group called Freegan in Singapore with about 1,100 members. Set up last year by Daniel Tay, 38, a financial planner, the age range of the group is from the twenties to the fifties with members from all walks of life. Notably, over 500 members in the group are from the 20- to 34-year-old age bracket.
