In case you've never heard of it, Freecycle is an online community where you can give things away rather than send them to the dump. It's fabulous! I've been giving away lots of stuff this summer as I pare down in preparation to go back to school.
From the website:
"Welcome! The Freecycle Network™ is made up of 4,142 groups with 3,963,000 members across the globe. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& 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 a local volunteer (them's good people). Membership is free. To sign up, find your community by entering it into the search box above or by clicking on “Browse Groups” above the search box. Have fun!"
There are tons of local groups – the one I belong to is hosted through Yahoo groups. Join and help keep stuff out of the landfills.
