A class of people who strive to be vegan
, but will frequently eat meat and use animal products.
Freegans like to think that they are ohhh so close to attaining that pure vegan status, but they can never quite make it, because they love meat and are not willing to give up their normal life style.
Freegans are considered phonies by both vegan and non-vegan alike, though non-vegans will often show an attitude of understanding, whereas vegans will look upon them with scorn.
Isabel: I'll have spaghetti with meatballs please.
Owen: Isabel - I thought you were a vegan
Isabel: I am!
Owen: It seems to me you are a freegan.
