Freeganer leben ein Leben, das für uns unvorstellbar ist. Und sind trotzdem glücklich.


Wir gehen in den Supermarkt, kaufen uns die Lebensmittel, die wir haben wollen, und schmeißen zu Hause letztendlich die Hälfte wieder weg. Das ist vollkommen normal für uns, im Durschnitt schmeißt jeder Europäer jährlich bis zu 115 kg Essen weg – dabei wäre das Meiste davon noch genießbar! Ungefähr ein Drittel der hergestellten Lebensmittel landen dadurch im Müll – grundlos.

Doch es gibt Menschen, die sich dagegen wehren – die Freeganer. Sie ernähren sich von dem, was wir wegwerfen, sie wühlen im Müll, damit all die Lebensmittel nicht umsonst produziert wurden. Und sie machen das sogar vollkommen freiwillig und nicht aus Geldnot! Sie machen es, um in unserer „Wegwerfgesellschaft“ ein Zeichen zu setzten.

Doch was genau ist überhaupt Freeganismus, auch „Containern“ genannt?

-       Das Wort „Freeganismus“ leitet sich von dem englischen Wort „free“ (frei) und „vegan“ (Bezeichnung für Menschen, die gegen den Verzehr von Tierprodukten sind) ab. Genaugenommen sind aber nur die wenigsten Freeganer auch wirklich Veganer.

-       Der Ursprung des Freeganismus liegt in den USA, hier in Deutschland ist er noch nicht sehr weit verbreitet, doch „was noch nicht ist kann ja noch kommen“, sagen Experten.

-       Die Freeganer wühlen in Containern, um ihre Nahrungsgrundlage zu finden (daher der Begriff „Containern“).

-       Viele Freeganer leben in WGs, und ziehen zusammen los, um sich das Essen zu holen, das wir nicht mehr wollten. Vor allem neben Supermärkten wie Lidl, Rewe oder neben großen Bäckereien werden sie fündig. Sie suchen sich alles, was sie für essbar halten, und nehmen es mit nach Hause.

-       Freeganer zu sein bedeutet nicht, dass man nicht an unserer Gesellschaft teilnehmen kann, einige von ihnen sind Studenten oder ganz normal berufstätig. Sie fallen nur auf, wenn sie im Müll wühlen.


Doch kann diese Lebensart überhaupt gesund sein?

In der frühesten Geschichte des Freeganismus ernährten sich die Freeganer von verschimmelten und eigentlich nicht mehr essbaren Lebensmitteln. Das war ungesund und sicherlich auch nicht immer lecker. Doch heutzutage leben Freeganer genauso gesund wie wir anderen auch – nur dass sie dafür eben nichts bezahlen. Denn wer denkt, dass man in unseren Mülleimern nur verschimmeltes Brot oder abgelaufenen Joghurt findet, irrt sich gewaltig: Man findet dort nämlich auch Croissants, die keiner mehr wollte und frisches Obst, das nicht mal mehr eine kleine braune Stelle hat.


Ob man den Freeganismus nun gut findet oder nicht, bleibt einem letztendlich selbst überlassen. Aber eines steht fest – Die Freeganer verstehen so viel besser als wir, dass Geld eigentlich nicht das Wichtigste in unserem Leben sein sollte. Und dass wir dankbar sein sollten, für jedes kleine Nahrungsmittel, das wir haben.
