I personally use Freecycle.org a lot to find items I need AND to give away items I do not need anymore. Nothing is too old, too broken or too weird to put it on Freecycle. Our old fridge for example. The door broke off while we tried to get it out of the house. The thing was very old and I did not think anybody would want it. I posted it (honestly telling that the door was broken off) and it was gone in 2 hours!!
Another approach to recycle/reduce/reuse is to share/swap or give things away with your Facebook friends using www.ecosharing.net. This will help reduce your carbon footprint… It’s definitely worth giving it a go… happy sharing!
