Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Freecycle.org


If you haven't heard of Freecycle yet I suggest you go to freecycle.org and find one in your area. The principle behind Freecycle is to encourage people to give away things they don't want rather than throw them away. This in turn reduces landfills and gets useful items into the hands of those who need them.

I have found many, many great things on freecycle including the items in the pictures here. I have also given away many items which is a good feeling. I really don't like throwing things away and this helps me to let go of things I no longer use since I know it's going into the hands of those who will use them. Freecycle helps us to be a good steward of God's resources. Something we all need to do better.

I love to find a new home for something I can't use. Such guilt when something is wasted!
