Author: Laura Pritchett
Publisher: Norman : University of Oklahoma Press, ©2009.
Edition/Format:   Print book : State or province government publication : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Over twenty writers to tell their personal stories of Dumpster diving, eating road kill, salvaging plastic from the beach, and forgoing another trip to the mall for the thrill of bargain hunting at yard sales and flea markets. Look not just at the many ways people glean but also at the larger, thornier issues dealing with what re-using, or not, says about our culture and priorities.

Abstract:

Over twenty writers to tell their personal stories of Dumpster diving, eating road kill, salvaging plastic from the beach, and forgoing another trip to the mall for the thrill of bargain hunting at yard sales and flea markets. Look not just at the many ways people glean but also at the larger, thornier issues dealing with what re-using, or not, says about our culture and priorities.
