Intro to Freecycle

25 Jun

Most of you are familiar with the “leave a penny, take a penny” cup located by the cash register at many stores; Freecycle follows the same idea. This is especially good if you have items that cannot be donated traditionally, such as carpet remnants or perishable food. You set the terms of the item pick up/delivery with the person you are giving/receiving. No money changes hands and no illegal items. Some people ask for broken china for art projects, while others give away flat panel TVs. It’s a great way to keep usable stuff out of landfills and go directly to people who will appreciate it most. I’ve been doing it for years and have met a lot of really great people who give as well as take. To find a group near you, go to the Freecycle website or simply enter the word “Freecycle” and your zip code in a search engine, such as Google or Bing.
