FREEUSE.ORG: THE FREEUSE NETWORK
|...the simple, age-old principle that's changing the world one gift at a time.
|What is this FreeUse thing about?
Well, in a nutshell, it's person to person recycling!
Whether you're looking to OFFER or SEEK a reusable item, TFN is the
place to do it...furniture, clothes, appliances, computers, toys, a pile of
dirt, plants, books, used moving boxes, and all things in between. Our
goal is to reduce waste by connecting people (via the power of the
Internet) who would otherwise throw away unwanted items with others
seeking those same items.
No item is too big or too small; but since this is a FreeUse list, all items must be 100% free.
The FreeUse Network is made up of individual groups across the globe. It's a grassroots movement of
people who are giving (& getting) items of worth for free in their own towns. Each local group is run by
a local volunteer moderator. Membership is free.
To sign up, find your community group by clicking on the appropriate region in the top, left box; then click
on your community link to visit the group home page to find out a bit more about the local group and to
join. Can't find an active group near you? You might want to consider starting one (click on "Start a Group"
for instructions). Have fun! (You can view a very nice group home page at this link: Example FreeUse Site.
Of course, only members have access to all the group privileges of this active site.)
The TFN provides individuals and non-profit orgs an electronic forum to reuse and recycle unneeded and
unwanted items by gifting them to another. You see, one person's person's trash can truly be another's
We are also about community service, advice and information transfer, e.g., If you have a pet for which you
can no longer care, though we advise that you use the local animal welfare orgs, we provide a forum for
placing your pet into a loving and responsible home. Also, we fully support the many local charities and
animal welfare orgs. Further, we encourage our members to ask each other for advice on our message
board--from getting a recommendation on a mechanic to what kinds of plants to place under your oaks.
