The group is about sharing our possesions with others. It's not freecycle where we are giving it away. The aims are similar in that we believe in buying less, reducing waste, creating community, and help save the planet. Sometimes we may need something briefly but might not want to own it nor do we have the space for it. Sometimes we might still value this object and still want it around in case we need it or share it with more people. It's like a library except we don't have an actual public space for it. But as the lender you run the *RISK* of losing this object or it being damage so hopefully you should be prepare for this. You would also have to go through the hassle of meeting up with people.
Despite what it seems, we all can benefit a great deal from this group. Ultimately, the goal of this idea is to build trust among strangers and hopefully in the future we can share even more with others and contribute to saving our planet.
SAMPLES of what you can share:
books, camera, cds, dvds, camping equipment, sports equipment, clothes, worktools, musical instruments, luggage, kitchen appliances, space, skills, etc.
WHEN POSTING please alphabetize your items and leave your name and contact info.
