If you want to feel good and simultaneously do some good for the earth, I suggest you check out Freecycle.org
Freecycle is a nonprofit, grassroots movement with 5,000+ groups worldwide.
People give/get stuff for free, locally.
The movement is saving you from being sucked into the corporate wormhole; Buy. Break. Toss. Repeat.
Help you $$$ SAVE MONEY$$$ and give yourself the opportunity to find cool, new-to-you stuff.
The best part? Things that are still good and usable stay out of landfills!
