Our mission is to build stronger communities while reducing waste. We do this by giving people a place to freecycle their stuff and find the things they need. What better way to improve the world than to give something away that you no longer need? You have more space, and they have that thing they always wanted! Its the ultimate win-win!
The best part of freecycling things is that great feeling of helping people out, as well as the liberating feeling of simply having less clutter in your life. You know that great feeling you get after having just cleaned your place? Yeah, it's just like that. No stress, no clutter, helping people. That's what FreeMesa is about.
The goal of FreeMesa is not just to give to the poor, or even just to freecycle stuff and keep things out of the landfill. Our goal is to help make life better for everyone. It's not about getting as much free stuff as possible either. Clutter has rarely improved anyone's life, even if the clutter was free. Our aim is to help people find the things they need, and get rid of the things they don't.
When you post an OFFER, you are offering to give someone a gift. You can give this gift to whomever you feel would be the best recipient. You can decide to freecycle the gift to whomever you wish, based on whatever criteria you wish. So if the first respondent is rude in requesting the item, you need not feel guilty about passing over him and selecting the next.
When you are posting a Request, you're asking for a gift. You are asking if anyone out there has a spare item they no longer need and wouldn't mind freecycling to a new home. So when posting requests, please keep this in mind and keep the requests reasonable.
We strive to make it easy to freecycle and communicate with other members on the site, yet still protect them from spam or being inundated by emails. We keep your contact info private and limit the notifications sent to each member. In this way the only people calling you or emailing direct are the ones you give your information to.
