They aim to connect people of the same neighborhood in order to share all things you no longer need. In case you hate throwing away your surplus of food and aliments, if you bought too much or cooked too much, or in case you are about to go for a few days with some remaining good things in your fridge, you have the opportunity to just take a picture of it and wait for your neighbors to reply and pick it up. Half of all items requested go away under an hour! Save your food, do not feel ashamed to waste it and, by doing so, meet your neighbors! A win-win combination.
If you are moving and want to get rid of a few things such as your toaster, or if you are looking for free stuff, this app is THE one! Freecycle is a nonprofit app run by volunteers that helps to bring your community together and meet your neighbors at the same time. If you have anything that you no longer need and that is just taking space in your storage, or if, on the contrary, you are a student and would love to be helped to furnish your apartment, Freecycle is the perfect free donation cycle to share and receive. It simply connects generosity and needs, creating a virtuous circle.
Freecycle helps foster connections amongst neighbors, limit waste and promote sustainability. It is a direct bridge between you and them, between giving and receiving. Don't throw it away - give it away!
