Freecycle | changing the world one gift at a time

This is a really great idea…starving artists, this is a gold mine! …I just signed up today for my local Adelaide Freecycle group, and already am arranging to pick up my first bit of free stuff (art supplies!)

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. Each local group is moderated by a local volunteer (them’s good people). 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!”
