Announcing the Culebra freecycle! Have something you don't need? Wanting something you do need? This is the place to post offers and wants to and from anyone on Culebra Island. The group is for those who live here and for those who are visiting. All OFFERS and WANTS must be 100% free, legal, and appropriate for all ages.

Say for example you are visiting Culebra and you have items you don't want to pack up to take home. OFFER it on freecycle and have someone come and pick it up from you. Or you live in Culebra and would really like an old used sofa- post a WANT for it and maybe a local has one they really would be happy to let you come and get. Or you never know- maybe someone planning to vist Culebra will see a local posting for some childrens toys and they might just bring some along and make arrangements to meet up with you. It's all about people helping people and keeping "things" from going to waste.

David- you are a member of the group....go and see.....

we are growing very slowly- I think we have 7 members so far but once we get a bit bigger and people start posting I think everyone will be in awe of how a grassroots concept can do something so amazing. There are half a million people freecycling worldwide!

It would be helpful if local folks would print out the flier and post at businesses, etc and let folks know about the group. Flier-

The big groups are in the news all the time- it's amazing the things people give away! For example one of the Florida groups today (Yes- all this in ONE day) gave away the following items: Printer HP 845c , womans plus size clothes 22-24, 2 Bridal Shower Party Game books, Ladies Dockers Pants Size 12, Boys Pull-on Shorts Size 10/12, Assorted Bath & Hand Towels; Washcloths , New Hotel size Lotions , Torso Track, Essiac herbal tea, Tall chest with 5 drawers, working Lexmark Z23, coupons for petfood, 13" tv works but the cable connector is broke, Tool room full of miscellaneous stuff from grout to tools, Sheet set Queen size, LifeStyler Cardio Fit, Hooflex Moisturizing Cream for pigs, 1x large skirt, pair of girls shorts & dress sz 5, Elisabeth jeans by Liz claiborne sz 18, yellow flowered sleveless dress sz 8, picture frames, purses and back packs, Steam vaporizer , Cool mist vaporizer , Visioneer Paperport one touch scanner,
Box of womens clothing sz 5-7, Box of 4" X 4" tiles, Sewing Machine in cabinet, gap pants and bugle boy pants, Country wooden wall calender, Mirror size 24x36, Small portable dish drain Plastic folds up, Telescope Telestar by Meade Has tripod,scope and eye piece Missing lenses, Pastel colored small wicker duck basket, Candy apple red dish drain with matching silverware holder, White leather pillow,

I freecycle locally- it's a great concept- neighbor helping neighbor, strangers becoming friends as everyone unclutters their homes and gives their unnneeded items away...
