Freecycle  is a free eBay of sorts—a place to give away unwanted items to those interested in receiving them. With millions of members worldwide, Freecycle is a global network of local communities communicating with one another to recycle and give used items a new home.
Freecycle’s mission is to be a worldwide gifting movement that reduces waste, saves resources and minimizes landfill garbage. Keeping true to their purpose, Freecycle’s recycle and reuse method cuts down on waste by keeping over 500 tons of stuff from entering landfills each day. [Source: Freecycle ™]
