Here's How One Guy Is Making A Difference By Riding His Bike Cross Country.

The United States wastes billions of dollars a year on food that goes uneaten. The US leads the world in waste and this is absolutely ridiculous, and certainly, unacceptable. Especially considering that 1 in 7 people in America are struggling getting enough to eat. It’s important that we make this known to everyone, and start doing something about it as a whole. Fortunately, there are people who are already making a difference, and spreading the word all over America. Rob Greenfield is one of those righteous humans. Using just his bike, and a whole lot of motivation, he travels the country helping people in need.

Rob wasn’t always the way he is now.

Like many people, Rob’s early goals centered around money, possessions and the pursuit of women. This is pretty typical for people in their early twenties.

Something in Rob’s life changed him.

After becoming more environmentally conscious, he realized his own actions were contributing to some of the major problems in the world. He knew that in order to see change in the world, he needed to make the change from within.

Small changes began to take over in Rob’s life.

He changed the way he ate, he began to shop local, reduce the amount of trash he produced, and removed harmful chemicals, from his life. He stopped using plastic bags and encouraged others to do so, as well.

These little changes were enough, but not for long.

Then Rob realized he needed to make bigger changes. His change needed to hit the road, so others could change, too.

Rob hopped on his bike and started a cross country ride.

He wanted to make people aware of the waste problem, in the form of dumpster diving. Dumpster diving is the act of taking perfectly good food out of the dumpster and using it to feed yourself, or others.
