Philadelphia is Freecycling!
What is Freecycle?
We’ve all had this problem. You have an item that you no longer use, but it is still in good condition and you don’t know anyone to donate it to. The item is too nice to throw out. There is a solution.
It’s Freecycling – an online service used as a bulletin board where people can both list things they want to discard, or post requests of stuff they need. The one stipulation is that everything is free.
The Philadelphia Freecycle Network can be accessed at www.phillyfreecycle.org. The Network estimates that since it started up, more than 5.5 tons of items have been diverted from the landfill. So the next time you have an item that’s too good to throw out and no one to give it to, Freecycle it!
