Young professionals from New York are spending their evenings bin-diving to collect food thrown away by cafes and supermarkets as a way of saving money and preventing waste. A group of Freegans, who live by using materials others throw away, organise monthly 'trash tours' to help people find the best places for free food products. The group found vegetables, packaged salads, yogurts, pasta, bread rolls and hummus and met the following day to cook a lavish barbecue, including homemade burgers and grilled vegetables. Organiser Janet Kalish said: 'We are finding these tours to be extremely popular. They are filling up with newcomers who are shocked by the level of waste and who now realise what they can recover from supermarket bins.' (Photo by Laurentiu Garofeanu / Barcroft U / Getty Images)
