www.ilovefreegle.org

Freegle is the only UK-run network facilitating the free re-use of legal goods via locally run web groups. We are a massive grass roots initiative that is leading environmentally positive action across the UK. In less than 6 months, since it was decided to have a unique network for the UK, we have topped the 1 million member mark. We are flourishing with over 220 independent groups spread throughout Scotland, Wales, NI and England. The amount of goods that we ensure are reused rather than thrown away is also happily growing.

Freegling reduces landfill and incinerator fodder because Freegle members are "Giving it away instead of throwing it away"!

Freegle groups also foster community spirit, lessen mindless consumerism, assist the economically challenged, reduce the load on local councils and encourage a more sustainable lifestyle... all done locally by locals and all done for free.

Freegle members can save money, time, energy and the planet - at the same time!
