Do you freecycle?

Here's something I wish my family and I did more often: freecycle. Started in 2003, the Freecycle Network helps unwanted goods find their way into new hands rather than being tossed into massive landfills. The grass-roots, volunteer-based movement has over 650 million members worldwide according to this article. Get in touch with freecylers near you by searching by state and city at the Freecycle website. Go ahead—spring clean that cluttered garage! Then feel good about giving away your flashlight collection to someone who can really use it.
