Freegle is a national grassroots organisation of people who are giving and receiving free unwanted items in their immediate communities. When you want to find a new home for something - whether it's a chair, a fax machine, piano, or an old door - you simply send an email offering it to members of the local Freegle group.

Charity shop

Charity shops work because they can sell items that you no longer need but could still have a second life. Donations should be clean and functional. By donating to a charity shop you can help a good cause AND the environment - re-use is even better than recycling.
