    Reduce, Reuse, Freecycle

    06.16.2009

    In today’s hectic throw-away society, our landfills are overflowing with (not only) our garbage but often valuable and reusable items. Unfortunately, such extensive consumerism has resulted in colossal amounts of waste that take up valuable space and pollute our planet. In order to reduce this waste and ease the burden on the landfills, Deron Beal of Tucson, Arizona came up with the idea of Freecycle.  With the vision of “changing the world one gift at a time,” Beal created the Freecycle Network in 2003 as a place where people could gift their unwanted belongings to others in their community, for free.
    The results are astonishing. As the organization is rapidly expanding, and today has over 6.1 million members in about 100 countries, it is currently keeping over 500 tons of waste a day out of landfills.
    With a similar navigation system to Craigslist, (an online network featuring free classified advertisements) individuals can post or search items, such as furniture, clothing, or even cars! Anything goes, because you never know when one person’s trash will become another’s treasure.
    For more information or to join a group in your local community, please visit Freecycle.org.
