Virtual Curbside Gifting
Whether you’re in the process of moving or just getting rid of clutter around the house, it’s likely you’ll end up with perfectly good items that you simply don’t want any more.
Since it’s not garbage, finding someone that you know that could use it is the obvious alternative.
In some neighborhoods, putting out on the curb with a ‘FREE’ sign usually gets the job done, but that’s not an option for a lot of folks.
Thanks to the Internet, there’s a virtual curb available for those items which is located at https://freecycle.org
There are millions of users from around the country that have started using the site to gift their items to others in the same area.
This movement is an awesome way to recycle your gently used items by giving it to those that may be looking for that exact thing.
It’s an excellent use of the online community to connect people in your local community to prevent usable items from ending up in our landfills.
It’s also a great place for starving students to find items for free that they would normally have to pay for: https://freecycle.org
