This illustration accompanied an article about Freecycle in Peachy Green

The Freecycle Network™ is made up of 5,083 groups with 9,328,341 members around the world. It’s a grassroots and nonprofit movement of people who are giving (and getting) stuff for free in their own towns.  It’s all about reusing things and keeping good stuff out of landfills. ”

Each local group is moderated by local volunteers. Napa has over 2,000 members in its local, Freecycle Yahoo Group. To sign up, you need to join Yahoo and have a user name and password for Yahoo services, including “Yahoo Groups” like Freecycle.  Ask a friend to help you if you don’t know how to do it.
