Northampton Freecycle WA Group

We now have our own Freecycle ™ group here in Northampton, this group cover the whole Shire of Northampton. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by a local volunteer and membership is free. By using what we already have on this earth, we reduce consumerism, manufacture fewer goods, and lessen the impact on the earth. Another benefit of Freecycle is that it encourages us to get rid of items that we no longer need and promote community involvement in the process.
