Some good from the crisis

freecycle

The current global economic crisis has hit everyone hard, but there could be a silver lining even to this cloud. The financial pressures are making people change their attitudes to spending, which could only be a good thing in the long run.

When you don’t have the money to buy everything the moment you want it, and there aren’t easily available lines of credit then you start thinking harder about what is really important. There has been an increase in use of groups such as freecycle that allow people to offer unwanted items to other people in the area that could use them. I think this sort of reuse is fantastic and I’d love to see this continue even once the financial situation eases.
