Free is Good: Yahoo! Promotes Reuse

Did you know that reuse groups, like last year's 3rd place NetSquared Innovation Award winner, Freecycle, are the most trafficked on Yahoo! Groups?

Yesterday, Yahoo! launched its "Free Is Good" campaign to help promote reuse. From April 20 -May 4 Yahoo! will be hiding prizes like a Smart ForTwo Passion Coupe, a trip to a national park and organic produce for a year, in randomly selected reuse groups.

You can find a reuse group near you (there are over 5,000 worldwide) on the Free is Good site.

I've been a member of the FreeCycle East SF Bay Area Freecycle group for almost a year now, and it's awesome. Literally within 20 minutes of posting an item, I will receive 10 + emails from people who would like it. In fact, I've got a pile of stuff to give away that I haven't had time to post about lately. Anyone want my husband's old rock climbing shoes (: ?
