Dunscore Eco Congregation set up a local Freecycle list several years ago. It is a very simple way to reduce the number of things that get wasted and are disposed of by offering them to other people. Over the years we have found new homes for an amazing list of items from bikes to beds and from plants to prams.
If you have something that you no longer need and would be happy for someone else to have, email firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be placed on a list that is emailed to about 90 people. Likewise, if you are looking for something, it can be added to a list of requests.
If you would like to be added to the list, send an email to email@example.com and you will receive the list by email each time something is added.
