(118) They Don’t Just Recycle – They Created FREECYCLE!

Have you ever wondered how you could give away that special item, or look for something you need at no extra cost.  And in the process – keep more junk out of landfills.  Well, the Freecycle Network™ is made up of 4,951 groups with 8,520,467 members around the world.

Here’s how they describe what they do:

“It’s a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (and getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It’s all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by local volunteers (them’s good people). Membership is free. To sign up, find your community by entering it into the search box (on the site) or browse the groups listing.  Have fun!”

  1. The Freecycle Network normally have a group process. This group process requires you to have Yahoo email addresses and some are moderated in an unfair way.
    The best way to Freecycle is to do it online on a website and there is one out there specifically designed for the task. Freecycle 4u.
    You can list your items for 90 days, collect a fee if you wish, randomly feature your item, highlight your item and more all from a simple to use account panel.
    Freecycle4u.com is 100% free, and there is a dedicated retail corner, (currently serving the UK but we are stretching this out globally) where our members can make massive savings from select retailers at peak times of the year.
