What Is The Freecycle Groups Network?

recycle, environment, recycle

Freecycling is an innovative trend that helps in saving both your money and the environment. The whole idea is based on the concept “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. Freecycle is all about exchanging goods instead of trashing the old ones and buying new ones.

 What Is The Freecycle Network? 

The Freecycle network is basically an online network made up of more than 5,450 groups with 8.1 million members around the world. So how does it work? Members receive and sent items in decent condition, free of cost, within their local communities. The Freecycle group’s network has increased over the past few years and it includes communities in more than 70 countries globally.

What Kind Of Stuff Can I Exchange? 

You can exchange about anything in the trade on Freecycle Groups Network. Items that can be exchanged range of clothes, shoes, books, electronics, video games, kitchen appliances, furniture, exercise equipment and more. 

How Can I Sign Up For Freecycle? 

You can sign up by visiting the Freecycle website. Membership of such websites and local communities are monitored by a local moderator. Items you post for freecycling must be legal and suitable for the users. They must be free of cost, no strings attached. The receiver is responsible for gaining the item making it easy for you to give away your used items rather than trashing it. But most importantly, the most beneficial thing is that there are many items you can find online in such communities which you can use yourself.

 Freecycle Keeps It Green 

The Freecycle Groups are not only ideal for getting rid of use goods, it also helps in saving the environment. Items are re-used instead of being trashed avoiding costly landfills which ruin the precious land. The Freecycle Groups Network helps in keeping around 500 tons of waste out of the landfills per day.

Future of e-waste Recycling

Electronic and electrical goods have become indispensable parts of our lives now. We cannot think of surviving without these products anymore. For instance, just think of your life without your laptop, computer, your tab, your cell phone, the flat screen television and so on. Another interesting fact in this regard is that the electronic companies manufacture higher versions of these devices and we replace the older ones with the latest models. Research reports say that almost 30-50 million tons of electrical and electronic goods are simply thrown away every year. And such stuffs are categorized under e-waste. Survey reports also say that the volume of such wastes is expected to increase by 3-5% per year as people don’t hesitate progressing towards ‘smarter’ products by dumping the older ones.
Where do the older and used electronic products head to?

This is a very important question that needs answers. You might find the old cell phone or tablet tucked in some corner of the drawer or…
