"Using a family cloth was just the next logical step in our family's efforts to conserve and reduce our carbon footprint. For as long as it was in my sphere of awareness, ...

Lynda Mink of Dunedin stands with some “freecycled” items — a stool, a shovel, a drill, a bag of corks, a bike and clothing. “I don't do retail anymore,” she said, and she gives away much of her trash on the freecycling website.

Curbside freecycling (read: the act of placing unwanted furniture and household junk outside of your home on a non-regularly scheduled trash pickup day in hopes that a random passerby will take a liking to and rescue it from landfill-dom) is a time-honored tradition in my adopted home of New York City.
For unwanted and unused household items — think small appliances, tools, toys and the like — that still have some life in them, Hibigaya station, which is operated by the nonprofit Zero Waste Academy, also boasts an on-site freecycling shop where villagers can leave or take things as they wish. And worth ...
I sometimes work in houses where clutter has taken over a bit. Often, it's because people aren't sure where to start in responsibly disposing of their stuff. If the large, unwanted things you have are in good enough condition, think about eBaying or Freecycling them first, but if you've exhausted those options, ...

In total, this comes to around £12.5billion a year in the UK – thrown straight in the bin. Not only does this hurt our pockets, but it's incredibly bad for the environment and a huge waste of resources – especially when at least a third of the UK is living below the poverty line. We waste £700 each throwing away ...
