Freeloader: Freecycle

More Free for the people. Check out Freecycle

"Our mission is to build a worldwide gifting movement that reduces waste, saves precious resources & eases the burden on our landfills while enabling our members to benefit from the strength of a larger community."

The Freecycle Network™ is made up of many individual groups across the globe. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. And guess what? Membership is free!

The Freecycle Network was started in May 2003 to promote waste reduction in Tucson's downtown and help save desert landscape from being taken over by landfills. The Network provides individuals and non-profits an electronic forum to "recycle" unwanted items. One person's trash can truly be another's treasure!

Number of Freecycle™ Communities: 3,449
Number of Freecycle™ Members: 2,056,632

same trash-to-treasure principle for ebay leads me to wonder why give it away when you can sell that shit?
