freecycle: to recycle (reuse) by giving away an item for free that otherwise would have been trashed.
Freecycle started out completely free as an open grassroots movement. Later The Freecycle Network (TFN) tried to take take back what it had given away and shut down many independent freecycling groups. Now freecycle is free again (see history). TFN can no longer shut down independent freecycling groups that happen to use the word freecycle in their name or title.
To keep freecycling free forever, as well as to make our world a better place, please spread freecycling far and wide. Tell your friends about freecycling, encourage others to freecycle, and like us in Facebook.
