Janet Kalish, Freeganism and Food Waste
Janet Kalish is an animal lover, retired Spanish high school teacher, vegan and freegan. She is an active member of the NYC freegan.info group in which she gives trash tours, helps organize film nights and discussions, Really Really Free Markets and DIY events, all with the purpose of educating and encouraging people to be less wasteful and to realize how our current system is abusing our planet and its inhabitants. By sharing, repurposing, salvaging and reusing, by living with a heightened sensitivity to the barrage of advertising and a will to resist it, we may stave off the horrifying trends that are dramatically altering our world.

  1. Thank you very, VERY much forgiving this desperately needed interview! This information needs to be on major media,24/7/365,nationwide! The truth and reality are such strangers in the world of today. I spent a summer in lower Manhattan (in the 1970s)with Jack Scully at “Everything for Everybody”, doing much the same as you and the Freegans are doing today. I’m looking forward to meeting you and participating with other Freegans on my next visit to NYC.

  2. Janet Kalish, please contact me about the Cardozo High School swap and shop. Thank You Bruce Rosof
