Yahoo! Freecycle Reuse Campaign: Free is Good

By Posted 2008 Updated   Tips

Its Earth Day 2008 today and Yahoo! Free is Good campaign urges you that instead of throwing out things like furniture, dishes, and electronics, you can join a reuse group to give these items away for free to other people in their community who can use them.

This is in participation with The Freecycle Network, a network of over 4000 groups with over 4 million members across the globe, who help reuse goods and keep them out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by a local volunteer and membership is free!

Yahoo! is hiding hundreds of prizes in reuse groups across the globe. Watch the offered items closely until you see a message about an Earth Day treasure, reply as instructed and you could win them. If you find something amazing on a Freecycle group, snap its photo and and tell your story on the FreeCycle Treasures group on Flickr.

Find your local reuse group today. I thought it was US centric only, so I was surprised to see several Indian Freecycle groups also for Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, Mumbai… now I know where to give my stuff away and do my bit for a greener earth.
