Freegle & Love Essex

On supporting reuse, digital marketing and resilient communities

"For us, supporting a charity such as Freegle is a way of encouraging resilient communities, especially in these difficult times. But the benefits don't end there. For every tonne of material that is reused, the local authorities reduce collection, processing and disposal costs."
Cathryn Wood, Senior Sustainability & Resilience Officer at Essex CC

Freegle Life - Canes and Naughty Dogs

“The canes were raspberry canes that I saw advertised on Freegle from a neighbour nearby and then a wanted item of a stair gate to keep a naughty dog downstairs from the same neighbour. She had the canes and I had the gate. Win win. Two happy people and nothing wasted.”
From a Freegler, Ribble Valley Freegle
