NORTH DEVON FREEGLE - FREE Giving........Locally.......Easily
Don't tip it or skip it! Give it away with Freegle!
North Devon Freegle is an online reuse group for locals to give away and get things for free. As long as whatever item you are giving away or asking for is legal and tangible, then it will be allowed on the group listings.
Freegle is a massive grass roots initiative that is leading environmentally positive individual action across the UK. There are 320 independent groups spread throughout Scotland, Wales, NI and England and we have over 1.2 million members. So North Devon Freegle is part of a very popular modern activity!
Making good use of stuff that we all already have by making sure that it is not unnecessarily dumped at the tip or lying around not being used. You would be amazed at what you can get rid of and what you can get. The amount of goods that we ensure are reused rather than thrown away is growing every day. It is really easy to be part of Freegle. You'll need access to a computer and an email address.
Not got your own computer, then visit your local library and use theirs for free?
Either go to http://freegle.in/NorthDevon and put your email address in the "Join the group" box or if you have a Facebook account already put North Devon Freegle in the search and like and join the group there.
Any problems just email your moderators at NorthDevonFreeglefirstname.lastname@example.org for help and advice.
Freegle groups also foster community spirit, lessen mindless consumerism, assist the economically challenged, reduce the burden on local council's resources and encourage a more sustainable lifestyle... all done locally by locals and all done for free! So by joining up to the North Devon Freegle Group you may even meet neighbours and discover positive initiatives going on in your area along the way.
Whether you are an individual, family, old or young, a local organization, sports club, charity, rich or poor or a business you can benefit from joining and start to offer any unwanted items you have to the other members in the group. Other members will email you if they are interested in the item you offer and arrange to collect it from you. Or if there's some item you are looking for then you can ask for those things too... someone just may have what you are looking for, and no longer need it themselves.
So whether it be a TV, empty moving boxes, clothing, sports equipment, DIY materials, a household full of furniture, toys, books, some dishwasher tablets, office equipment, fresh squid or an old WWII shelter it is possible to give it away or get it for free via Freegle, instead of it going to waste at the tip or languishing unused.
Freegle members can save money, time, energy and the planet - all at the same time!
