Freecycle groups match people who have things they want to get rid of with people who can use them. The goal is to keep usable items out of landfills. By using what we already have on this earth, we reduce consumerism, manufacture fewer goods, and lessen the impact on the earth. Another benefit of using Freecycle is that it encourages us to get rid of junk that we no longer need and promote community involvement in the process.
Freecycle is a world wide network that has been running sucessfully for many years http://uk.freecycle.org/
Lockner has its own small scale freecycle that we run by email. There are lots of perks to freecycling things; you get rid of the item from your home quickly (no need to fuss with ebay and postage or carrying it down to the charity shop), and good neighbourly karma!
If you have something usable in good or new condition that you would like to freecycle, then send us an email with a full description of the item (+/- photographs), we will distribute it to our mailing list and forward onto you any responses.
If you would like to hear about free things your neighbours are giving away then email us and ask to be added to the mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org
