A few years ago we bought a number of products to maintain our garden furniture. Some of them turned out to be the wrong thing altogether, and some turned out to be the wrong color. So many of them ended up being stored in the garage, taking up valuable space, for several years.
While having a clear out, I came upon these tins and had a choice about what to do with them. Taking and uploading photos, describing them, and listing them all took a bit more effort (though probably a similar amount of time) than a quick trip to the recycling centre, but was so much more satisfying.
Within a few hours of my post I had a message from someone whose family has a lot of garden furniture they need to maintain themselves, and can use it all. How wonderful that someone else can make use of these things I no longer need, rather than just mindlessly throwing them into a skip!
And it’s all so much easier, with more built-in automation than when I was using Freegle regularly some years ago. Really well done to all the volunteers who set this up and keep it going.
