Freecycle


Freecycle is an entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. I'm sure you have come across things in your own home that you don't need anymore, but you are not sure what to do with them. Freecycle is a perfect example of "One man's junk is another's treasure". Just join you local Freecycle group, and when you want to give something away, post it on the site, and see if someone wants it. In the same way, check out people's posts, and see if there is anything that you would want. I have given away a few baby things, and gotten a nice Sunbeam mixmaster, and have always had a great experience with Freecycle. Check them out, and join if you like the idea. Freecycle is not available everywhere unfortunately, but you could always look into starting your local Freecycle group if you can't find one.
