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 (: ?
