One person is looking for a rocking chair for a newborn baby.
Another, a tote bag to carry a pet guinea pig. One person offers up a nearly new yoga mat; another, a “large-ish cardboard box” that is “not sturdy enough for shipping but great for summer fun with kids.”
Welcome to Freecycle, a grassroots “cyber curbside” where people can drop off unused items and others can pick them up — for free.
As an environmentally motivated, volunteer-based nonprofit, Freecycle sets itself apart from other similar websites, such as Craigslist, said the organization’s founder, Deron Beal.
