For three months, two friends vowed not to buy anything and to get everything they needed to live on through the fine art of "dumpster diving" (a.k.a.: digging through the trash). This included apartment furnishings, clothes, food and fuel for their car — no, not by siphoning it from others' cars, they converted their engine to run on cooking oil.
They documented their adventures in their film, I Love Trash, interviewed career scavengers, and explored how and why people (and not just the homeless) dumpster dive. Through the film, they question our society that is based largely on consumption (and waste).
