    Hi Y'all!

    I just found something I think is really cool!
    It's called "freecycling" (as in, giving away & receiving stuff for free, as a way to recycle & keep stuff outta landfills).
    It's not bartering. It's a no-strings-attached giveaway.

    Google "freecycle" & you'll find the official website, which will direct you to your local group.

    I just gave away several of my freshman-level textbooks, that have been sitting around collecting dust, to somebody who really needed them.

    They suggest new members post an "offer" before posting a "want". I think that's a really good idea!

    Just wanted to share this with everyboddy!

    My first experience with free-cycling was very positive.

    Of course, we all know to beware of trolls & such, out here in the online world!

    I've freecycled. It's a fantastic way of addressing so many needs from economics to environment.

    Big, Freecycle fan!
