Freecycle can be a great resource for inspiration and materials for your next big project. The grassroots movements has over 5,000 different groups around the world, all dedicated to giving away things they don’t need to people in their town who might use them. The idea behind the project is to cur down on the stuff that ends up in people’s landfills. Crafting supplies like bottles, wrapping paper or fabric you get from other members of the site not only help your pocketbook since they’re free, they help the environment too since the original owner isn’t throwing them away. It doesn’t get better than that!
