Gigoit: Reuse, Give/Get Stuff for Free

January 11th, 2007 · No Comments

Gigoit is a new website that promises to connect those with junk to throw away with those who need stuff, desperately, for free, for free. That is charity at its best.

You can list whatever it is that you have in your possession that you are about to throw away on the website, and hope to give it away to someone who can use it. Likewise, you can search for that thing you need within X miles of your zipcode and see if someone has listed that item to be given away for free.

This looks like the online, forum-based version of Freecycle. Freecycle mainly operates as local mailing lists, but there are advantages to a web-forum based method such as the one promised by Gigoit. I look forward to gigoit’s success – Americans throw out way too much useful stuff, really.
