Waste-free living and giving

Don't like garbage dumps? Who does? Join the 8 million people doing something about it. They belong to the nonprofit Freecycle Network, dedicated to saving the planet one landfill at a time.

The group set up Freecycle.org, where people who want stuff find those giving it away. As the website states: "It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills." The idea is becoming popular. So far, 4,918 groups, with more than 8 million members, have signed on.

A search function lets you find fellow freecyclers near you. You'll get a stern warning at first: "Everything must be FREE, legal and appropriate for all ages. No selling, trading or borrowing." Joining won't cost you anything, but a Freecycle bumper sticker will set you back $2.50.
