Garbage in garbage out, Gigoit makes recycling easyWho doesn't love getting free stuff? And for that matter who doesn't love pawning off their junk (and I mean that in the nicest sense of the word) on someone who'll make good use of it. You're probably thinking "Freecycle" and that's the same thing I, and many others, would have thought no less than a month ago. Since the day I signed up my mailbox has been flooded with offers for television sets, couches and baby clothes. Had I ever found the time to sort through them I might have a pretty impressive clutter collection by now. The point I'm getting at it is it took a lot of patience to sort through Freecycle emails and I don't have very much.
So when I first heard about Gigoit (Garbage In, Garbage Out), I was intrigued. It too is based on the premise that one person's trash is another's treasure. The best part is this, it's really simple to use, and there's no mailing list!
It all started when two friends from Missouri thought they could do the online-donation concept better, and it seems they really did. So far it's available in the U.S. but there are plans for this non-profit to go worldwide. You're not restricted to viewing items in one area either, so you can find items for friends or do some freebie hunting while you're on vacation. Get out a camera and use Gigoit to start your spring cleaning early.
