Brooklyn Free Store
Tue, 08/17/2010

It's a store with no hours, no retailers and no customers, reports Colin Moynihan in the New York Times (8/16/10). It's called the Brooklyn Free Store, and as the name suggests, everything is free. Open for just six weeks, it is located on a dirt lot in a white tent under a blue tarp behind a chain link fence with a purple sign that says: Take what you want. Share what you think others may enjoy (not limited to material items)."

Naturally, there are no doors or locks at Brooklyn Free. Its organizers say the store is "intended to demonstrate the feasibility of recycling and to offer an alternative to mainstream capitalism." Items range from canned green beans to brown wingtips, "along with a used toaster oven, a flashlight and a galvanized metal bucket." It's not all junk though: Some participants have "dropped off a digital camera, an electric stove and a TiVo with a recording capacity of 40 hours."

Last month, a diverse group of friends and neighbors opened the Free Store. From environmental reasons to artistic expression to the endeavor’s anti-capitalist nature, the founders’ motives vary as much as the store’s merchandise.

“I get so frustrated with the amount of waste I see on the sidewalk,” said Thaddeus Umpster, who helps stock the store with items he finds on the street. “The store gives ‘garbage’ a second chance for a new home.”

An earlier iteration of the same concept previously operated out of a Williamsburg storefront "from 1999 to 2005." The concept is based on "the original, a Diggers group of agrarian utopians in 17th-century England." Forty years ago, modern Diggers also ran storefronts in San Francisco and New York. "New York is world renowned for having the best garbage," says Myles Emery, an organizer. "There could be free stores everywhere." This one is located on 232 Walworth St. between Dekalb and Willoughby Avenues in Bed-Stuy.

Bacon Lovers vs. Soy Huggers: The Smackdown


A dyed-in-the-wool vegetarian, I had always assumed that when it came to sustainability, my diet would beat the leather pants off that of my burger-crazy friends. But as I wrote in "Get Behind Me, Seitan," (July/August 2010 issue of Mother Jones) some environmentalists and farmers claim that eating responsibly raised meat can actually be good for the planet. So who's right? I posed the question to five smart people: Eating Animals author and novelist Jonathan Safran Foer, farmer and writer Joel Salatin, Diet for a Hot Planet author Anna Lappé, Bard College geophysicist Gidon Eshel, and food-waste expert Jonathan Bloom.

Mermaid Tail Tree
This tree lives in the Australian rain forest, but looks like it would be more at home in the middle of the sea. Rain forests are defined by extreme rainfall and heavy, overhead canopies. It seems like the roots of this tree have compensated for extreme moisture and lack of sunlight by reaching out of the soil toward the sky.

"And Man created the plastic bag and the tin and aluminum can and the cellophane wrapper and the paper plate, and this was good because Man could then take his automobile and buy all his food in one place and He could save that which was good to eat in the refrigerator and throw away that which had no further use. And soon the earth was covered with plastic bags and aluminum cans and paper plates and disposable bottles and there was nowhere to sit down or walk, and Man shook his head and cried: 'Look at this Godawful mess.'"
- Art Buchwald, 1970

Take action at http://bit.ly/9ybI8A. Watch our wacky cartoon spoof of the toxic chemicals lobby, created to galvanize support for Congressional action. Make sure to like it, take action, and share with your network! The characters you will meet in the video are cartoons, but the plot is ripped from the headlines.
