We ask Freegle members for feedback whenever they give or take an item. As a result, we have lots of great stories to share from members who have successfully gifted their unwanted items to other people in their community.
You are welcome to use any of our user stories to help promote Freegle in your area. There are a few examples below and more to be found at https://www.ilovefreegle.org/stories . Many Freegle communities list stories on their homepage under 'Stories'. If you are searching for a specific theme, item or part of the UK, please ask us, we might just have what you are looking for!
"There is so much waste in our world and I very much appreciate Freegle's solution to the problem. I've Freegled things like hardcore, which I had no idea that anyone would want, and perfectly good items that I just no longer had a need for. I've also received a lot of useful things including roof tiles, toilet, sink, bathroom cabinet, kitchen cabinets and a heated towel rail, all of which are now part of the scullery and downstairs. I've met some lovely people, too and would thoroughly recommend Freegle to anyone who wants to reduce waste and take a positive step towards improving our world."
"The toilets at my local Scout Group HQ left a little to be desired. Through the magic of Freegle I managed to source from some amazingly generous folk around the Barnsley area some tiles, a sink, grout, a tile cutter, everything we possible needed to refurbish both the ladies and gents toilets. No more embarrassment when anyone uses the loos now. In fact we are rather proud of our beautiful loos now. Thank you from the bottom of over 75 little hearts and quite a few grown up hearts."
