At the beginning I felt uncomfortable, especially when passers-by looked at me. I was also a bit afraid of picking up some disease from the bins or getting food poisoning from anything I ate, but, in the end, I actually began to think that scavenging in bins makes a lot of sense. I found lots of fresh fruit and vegetables in a bin outside a supermarket as well as some tins of ravioli, which made an excellent meal that evening. Overall, I think that my actions that day not only earned me a free meal, but also helped reduce waste.
