Several weeks ago a new site just opened to help keep trash out of landfills and provide for those in need or us people who like freebies. The Regives is a little different as it has a state listing, all you have to do is join up (FREE) and start listing or finding things that can be recycled and reused.
Their mission Statement
reGivesTM is a growing community of people around the planet interested in saving stuff that still has legitimate use from ending up in landfills. They do this by offering it up on this site for free and we connect them with someone within their community who still has a use for the item.
reGivesTM is about helping your neighbors but also helping the environment by preserving what we already have rather than just throwing it away.
In the United States alone, the country produces several million tons of waste every day that end up in our landfills. Some of this waste no longer has legitimate use and needs to be recycled. However, there are millions of items that end in landfills every year that otherwise could have been used by your neighbor down the road. It’s such a waste all around.
Consider the items that are collecting dust in your basement, attic and/or closets. Items that you have no use for. You could take the easy route and throw them away, or you could help preserve the resources we have on this planet and pass the item along to your neighbor who still has use for your item.
