Their tagline is, "Changing The World One Gift At A Time
", and indeed they are with over 3, 944 communities already listed with their worthy nonprofit organization. What a great idea!
You offer what you want to give away, and/or check to see what someone is freely offering. This is a model for an ideal world, yes?
Here's more from their website:
"The Freecycle Network™ is made up of many individual groups across the globe
. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. Each local group is moderated by a local volunteer (them's good people). Membership is free. To sign up, find your community by clicking on the region on the left. You may then go directly to your local group by clicking on "Go To" or you may immediately joining by clicking on "Join." It will generate an automatic e-mail which, when sent, will sign you up for the local group and send you a response with instructions on how it works. Can't find a group near you? You might want to consider starting one (click on "Start a Group" for instructions). Have fun!
The Freecycle Network was started in May 2003 to promote waste reduction in Tucson's downtown and help save desert landscape from being taken over by landfills. The Network provides individuals and non-profits an electronic forum to "recycle" unwanted items. One person's trash can truly be another's treasure!"
They're also in some European countries.
