“Well, we’re back.”

Filed under: Uncategorized — theburts @ 12:10 pm

Almost a direct quote of my favorite fictional character ever, Samwise Gamgee (Lord of the Rings).

We’ll post more about our trip to Haiti later. For now, I just want to get something posted so everyone will know that we made it home.

It’s fascinating to us how many articles have been written about the show and about us! For those of you (ie. our moms) who want to read those, here’s a list. We were also interviewed on a live talk show last night called the Allen Hunt Show, based in Atlanta, GA. You can check it out too if you’re interested in how we come at freeganism from more of a faith angle.

Our Allen Hunt Show appearance


More Christian divers

All of the articles that I’ve seen are mostly positive. The comments are often quite negative, but if those people would simply come read our blog many of their arguments would be explained. People often point out that while they won’t dumpster dive themselves, they are inspired to find other ways to reduce consumerism, waste, and needless consumption. Awesome. We are so grateful and happy that so many people are being encouraged to change from our decision to “go public.”

We’ll post again soon. Don’t forget to send an email to nashvillefreegan@gmail.com if you are interested in meeting up somewhere in the Nashville area for more conversation.



  1. Aha! I didn’t know where to go to find that podcast. Thanks Ariah. :)

  2. Welcome back!

    I’d love to hear more about your Medical Mission. I’ve always wanted to go on one, but they don’t really seem to have many openings for Pharmacists. I’m just going to have to go one day and forge my own niche.

  3. Just wanted to let you know that I have just published the “interview” article on Associated Content-the email interview between Daniel and I right before you left on the medical mission. This is the article address-

    I hope I did it justice-the other one has gotten a lot of page views-probably a lot from people who have been referred by you-but also maybe from some you are new and learning about the subject.

  4. Hi,

    I just wanted to say that I was so excited to see you both on the Oprah show regarding freeganism. It was especially encouraging because you are both Christian. It seems that only more recently (unless I somehow completely missed this in the past) more Christians are becoming aware and passionate about environmental issues. This is WONDERFUL to learn and I’m so excited that there are more Christian tree-hugger-types out there!

    Wish I still lived in TN–maybe I could have gone Freegan will you all! :)
