A grassroots nonprofit networked online
community that offers local and individual city groups that promote reuse through local gifting among their members. People can join their own local Freecycle network to post and read ads by other members who are looking for free items or who have free items to give away. Each local Freecycle community is moderated by volunteers and would have its own e-mail newsgroup for interested local members to join. Freecycle, also called the Freecycle Network, was founded in May 2003.
