Austin Freecycle

public - created 12/16/03
For Austin Freecyclers to get to know each other and for posting images of freecycle items offered...see groups.yahoo.com/group/austinfreecycle/ to do the actual freecycling! Thanks! Freecycle on!

**********************************************
Welcome to the Austin Freecycle Network, where one person's trash is another's treasure! Our goal is to reduce waste by connecting people who are throwing away unwanted items with others who are seeking the same items (and have a little fun in the process). No item is too big or too small; but since this is a FREEcycle list, ALL items must be 100% (that's right, you got it) free.

Freecycling lies somewhere between the garage sale and the dump, and is much cooler than either. It's an innovative concept that harnesses the power of the Internet to do what the Internet does best -- eliminate the middleman and empower the individual. Unlike traditional charitable organizations that accept people's castoffs and sell them for low prices in unappealing shops (or end up taking them to the dump anyway), freecycling allows for personal contact between donor and recipient -- each gets exactly what they want, and nobody is considered a "charity case" (Indeed, many freecyclers both give and receive items on a regular basis.) It's a perfect consumer-friendly circle: no overhead, no intermediaries, no money changing hands, no waste and no catch, and everyone's happy.

The Austin Freecycle Network serves the greater Austin, Texas area; people living in neighboring towns are also welcome.

The Austin Freecycle Network is modeled after the Tucson Freecycle Network, the original freecyclers. Find out more about the VERY fast-growing international freecycle movement at www.freecycle.org.
