WEBSITE OF THE DAY - freecycle.org

Today’s website of the day is freecycle.org a website that aims to “change to world, one gift at a time”, by helping to find homes for unwanted goods.

The logic runs like this: incinerating 10,000 tons of waste would create one job. Landfilling the same amount creates six jobs. But recycling those 10,000 tons of waste creates 36 jobs.” So why not just offer your stuff to anybody who might want it? It’s the easiest way to recycle.

By joining your local FreeCycle group, you’ll be able to get rid of your unwanted items and maybe find something you’re after too. And no money changes hands. Ever. We’ve heard of people picking up everything from rare LPs to garden sheds, so it’s worth signing up and seeing what you can trade.

Each group is monitored by a volunteer to make sure everything runs smoothly and as long as your goods are free, legal and appropriate for all ages you could soon find good homes for your unwanted gear.
