zero commerce 

From a free store to a grassroots network that's making it easier than ever for people to give things away, more and more young people are re-using and freecycling.

'If it's not tied down, take it.' With those words, a store operating under the radar in Brooklyn is changing the way people look at commerce, ownership, and interpersonal exchange. On the internet, a grassroots network called Freecycle is making it easier than ever for people to give things away, no strings attached. Is an emerging 'free' market carving out its own niche beside mainstream consumer culture? Are young people helping to lead the way?

Comment: more freeshoppîng... yeah!



The Freecycle NetworkT is made up of many individual groups across the globe. It's a grassroots movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. Each local group is run by a local volunteer moderator (them's good people). Membership is free. To sign up, find your community by clicking on the region on the right. It will generate an automatic e-mail which, when sent, will sign you up for your local group and send you a response with instructions on how it works. Or, go directly to the Web site for your local group by clicking on your community's link on the left. Can't find a group near you? You might want to consider starting one (click on "Start a Group" for instructions). Have fun!
