What goes around… Freecycle

My mum just sent me a link to Freecycle, which (once again) looks like a thriving global network I’d never heard of. You can sign up with your local chapter and offer things you don’t want anymore, to like minded individuals. Cracking idea – already my eyes are scanning the office for junk!

Here’s the blurb from my local group:

This Freecycle group matches people who have things they need to get rid of with people who can use them.? Our goal is to keep usable items out of the landfill.? By using what we already have on this earth, we reduce consumerism, manufacture fewer goods, and lessen the impact on the earth.? Another benefit of using Freecycle is that it encourages us to get rid of junk that we no longer need and promote community involvement in the process.? Free your inner pack rat!

  1. I’ve used the Southend version of this, from both sides, give and receive. You always think that a concept like Freecycle is massively open to abuse (i.e. collect Freecycle offers, chuck on ebay: BINGO!) but it doesn’t seem to be the case at all from what I’ve seen over the past nine months.
