Freecycle
Jamais Cascio, 6 Mar 04

WorldChanging ally Andrew Zolli just posted in his Z+ Partners blog about Freecycle, a worldwide network of people giving stuff away. As Andrew puts it, Freecycle combines "the Gift Economy, Sustainable Thinking, and Craigs List." All you do is sign up for the Freecycle list for your hometown (there are currently over 250 cities involved, and the site has instructions for starting your own list); everything posted to the list is free for the taking. They could have called it a "bottom-up collaborative material recycling and reuse network," but "Freecycle" is a bit less clumsy.
