RecycleThisNYC is holding a FreeMeet this Saturday at the Harlem YMCA!
FreeMeets are a great way to give new life to stuff you no longer need, and also to find something you may be looking for. It’s all about keeping useful items out of the landfill and promoting recycling in general. A fun video about last year’s FreeMeet at Habana Outpost in Fort Greene can be seen here.
FreeCycle NY and FreeCycle Brooklyn are also great resources for sharing used stuff (they are Yahoo groups and require opening a free account here). I have found new homes for furniture and other items I no longer needed and gotten plants for my building’s garden this way. Making less garbage feels really good!
