Freecycle to the Rescue
If you haven't heard of Freecycle, you should check it out at http://www.freecycle.org/ and search for your local Freecycle group. The Freecycle Network™ is made up of 5,035 groups with 8,917,299 members around the world. Freecycling links up people that have unwanted things to give away at no cost, with people who need or want things. I have Freecycled countless items, and it makes me feel good to share with others and reduce the environmental impact of our waste by keeping it out of landfills and/or incinerators. It's also a good way for those on a budget to pick up items for free, reducing their expenses. Ultimately, Freecycling also results in decreased demands on new manufacturing processes, which results in energy savings and resource conservation. Freecycling is a win-win in my book!
