I first started using Freegle when I came across the site and spotted something I was in need of. I wasn't lucky that time but I did find myself thinking This is brilliant! I wasn't in a very good financial position at that time and for people like me something like Freegle was a really great help. I have been gifted with some really useful things and have been able to give some too. It's so good to know that perfectly useable things aren't being thrown away if someone else can use them.
My daughter's first flat was part furnished by Freegle and her kitchen ware entirely supplied by Freegle.
I am incredibly anti landfill and senseless waste! I won't say I never buy anything new, that would be a lie. However, wherever possible, I do try to exhaust other possibilities first.
This is the only planet we have, it's best taken as much care of as we can!
