Okay, this is me REALLY excited! I was recently introduced to the most fabulous, green, pay-it-forward-inducing organization called Freecycle. In a nutshell, Freecycle is a website that allows folks to help each other by offering items for FREE to members of their community and also allows folks to request items that they want and/or need. EVERYTHING on Freecycle is, as the name suggests, absolutely FREE. Amazing concept, right? Inspired by success stories I'd read about, I decided to put up a listing requesting new and/or used unwanted nail polishes. The following is what I received from an awesome lady named Beth who was kind enough to respond to my listing:
As a true hippie at heart, I love that this not only allows folks to recycle unwanted/unused items, but gives said items a whole new life by sharing them with others who will love and appreciate them. I must admit, I'm a total packrat. When I get into a mood to purge (which, alas, isn't nearly often enough), I always donate whatever I can to a goodwill of some kind. However, this concept works for me just as well, perhaps even better, because you are able to help someone fulfill a very specific wish or need and know for sure that your items are going directly to someone who will make good use of them. I can't wait to start offering my goodies to folks who will enjoy them. To check out this awesome site, click HERE and see for yourselves how good it feels to have a wish granted or help someone else in your very own neighborhood!
P.S. If you, by any chance, see this post, Beth, I thank you again for making my first Freecycle experience a wonderful one!
