Recycle with Free Give Group

Emma has written to tell us about an alternative to Freecycle (see Local Links in the lefthand column on this blog). Called FREE GIVE, it appears to operate the same way...

Emma says:
If you haven't heard yet, there is wonderful organization called Free Give Group ( ). Free Give Group connects people who are giving and getting unwanted items for free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills and, at the same time, helping someone in your community by gifting them the item you no longer need. Another benefit of using Freegive is that it encourages people to get rid of junk that we no longer need and promote community involvement in the process. By using Freegive, not only are you able to get rid of your item with the minimum of fuss; you will also be doing your part in stopping another reusable item ending up in a landfill. It's completely free to join and everything posted must be free.

This is a great idea! Encouraging people to reuse and recycle things by giving them away and not sending them to the garbage bin!

I think Free Give ( ) is a great way to build a bond in the community and it's always good to recycle. I think it's a fantastic idea and everyone should join!

Ta, Emma...
