Freecylce

post #1 of 4

So I had this in my freebie/budget list too, but was realy suprised at the lack on info on freecycle on here. I'm not sure how to create a wiki yet from scratch, so I am posting it here and then importing it to wiki

When you are on a budget, freecycle is one of your greatest assets and it is an oh- so green practice at the same time. You've got all three Rs. The person giving is Recycling, the person taking Reusing and both of you are Reducing demand for new products. Talk about a win/win/win!

Thanks for getting the thoughts going on Freecycle - it's a great concept (and one I've taken advantage of.) You're right we don't make wiki creation very obvious (a new button will go up soon), but you go to the Wiki Home page (http://greenhome.huddler.com/wiki) and in the text there is a link that says CREATE A NEW WIKI...really not ideal.

 

Thanks for calling attention - you rock!

Freecycle is a great resource but sometimes it can be hard for new Freecycle members to adjust to all the Freecycle rules and the flood of email from the mailings lists.  I've built a new free site that makes it quicker and easier for people to use their existing Freecycle groups at trashnothing.com

 
I've also created a map-based directory of all the freecycling groups in the world at: Freecycling Group Finder
It makes it really easy for people to find their local groups.
