What a good idea

Hands up if you have half a tonne of stuff at home that you want to chuck - but you can't bring yourself to junk it because you know someone, somewhere, would really like to have it?

OK, you can put your hand down now, and use it to click on Freecycle.

I don't think there's a Freecycle community in Shanghai yet - but, if anyone wants a pair of cheap computer speakers, a Chinese-speaking answering machine, three very cheap plastic wastepaper baskets, a perspex paperweight, some second-hand slippers, a metal fruit bowl, a mini anglepoise lamp, or a set of multicoloured plastic clothespegs, just drop me a line, and we'll get one started.

Oh, you can also have an extension lead with some dodgy wiring, and a quite-nice large-size Chinese wall calendar from 2003.

  1. If you have things which you no longer need or you are looking for a second-hand freebie, take a look at GreenGonzo UK Freecycle Search. You can clear out your clutter, be generous and help the environment all at the same time!
