Introduce Clients to a New Way to Recycle

Freecycle: Reuse Trumps Recycle!
When you can’t sell it… gift it!

Garage and yard sales are a staple of the “soon to move” client. You may have even given your clients free “Yard Sale” signs as a gift, helping them prepare for the big move. But as we all know, yard sales don’t always unload all of the stuff. What do you do when that exercise bike from five years ago didn’t catch a buyer… not even at $10?

Enter Freecycle.org! From their website:

The Freecycle Network(TM) is made up of 4,793 groups with 7,208,000 members across the globe. It’s a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It’s all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by a local volunteer (them’s good people). Membership is free.

It’s not that no one wants your used 200-pound exercise bike… it’s more likely a problem of connecting with the person who might want it.

Introduce your clients to Freecycle and you’ll not only seem helpful, but also environmentally conscientious!
