Useful Website - 1 - Freecycle.org

The first in a series of useful websites I've discovered.. (not specifically fruitarian related).

My good friend, and fellow fruit enthusiast, Jamshed, recently told me about this online resource..

Freecyle is this wonderful, somewhat global, system, whereby whatever you don't want (that has some value), instead of throwing it away, you give it away to someone.. (It works through a network of "yahoo groups")

Equally, if you see something you like that someone else has finished with, you can take it off them..

That's it.. no money involved, no accounting, just a network of people freely giving and taking from one another..

If that sounds like something you might be interested in, then check out the website, and search for a group near you..


Freecycle Network
changing the world one gift at a time


Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Freecycle..

PS Will just posted a comment informing me of another link that you can use to find a freecycle group near you: http://finder.overcycle.com/
