Don’t Trash It - Freecycle


Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Internet, Misc. Tech


Freecycle logoWant to do more than just throw away your old stuff now that you have better gadgets amassed from the holidays? Started in 2003, the Freecycle Network is filled with freebies. It claims to save more than 300 million tons of trash every day by recycling. There are now more than 4 million members from 4,100 cities, so if you haven’t been there lately, visit it again.

The site also features volunteer moderators who make sure the swaps are legal and G-rated. Founder Deron Beal is proud that Freecycle helped a Hurricane Katrina victim refurnish his home and features such acts of kindness as the man who assembles bike parts then gives them away. Think of it as a kinder, more generous craig’s list.

I belong to the freecycle where I am from and this is a good way to get rid of items that are still good that you dont want or dont use. You just post the item and then people reply and you decide who you want to give it to. I have gotten things through freecycle and gotten rid of things also, its a great thing to do.

It’s great to see that this program is helping out others and making the environment a better place.  This service would really help me get rid of all the stuff I have lying at home that I don’t need.
