DisadvantagesIt saves the Earth

"Freecycle is a community of local groups who exchange items for free within thier local areas. There are communities throughout the country and, indeed, the world. The aim of the groups is to keep items out of landfill and to "recycle" them by giving them to others. Membership of freecycle groups is free and, at least in the UK, they are mainly run as Yahoo! Groups. To see if there is one near you just visit www.freecycle.org and use the search facility ..." Read review
