Give and Take 

Today I stumbled across Freecycle, an online goods exchange. Freecycle aims to help people "reduce, reuse, and recycle" stuff they already have but don't use by giving it to people who need it. It's the information age equivalent of giving your extra rake to your neighbor when his breaks. There are exchange message boards for just about every town and city in the U.S. Recent posts to the Columbia group include a request for bedroom furniture and an offer of computer peripherals.

For businesses, South Carolina WasteXchange serves the same purpose, allowing businesses to use other businesses' leftover supplies.


Thanks for posting that recycling link! I try to reuse absolutely everything, so this is extremely helpful! Thanks, too, for your Beauty Gone Wrong piece! You are live at Beauty Dish....
