REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE 2:21 PM

Almost everyone you know has probably made a profile on a social networking site. You can keep in touch with friends and relatives, see what everyone is up to, post photos and create albums, etc. I found a great site called swapmamas.com. It's a social network site with tons of the same great features as all the other social networks.. This site has something that sets it apart from all others. It's what they are about. "Smarter, Greener, and Kicking the Economy to the Curb". That's the first thing you see on the top of the page in big bold letters. I joined a local swap group on my first visit to the website. I know I am not the only person with a box or bag of clothes that didn't make it out to the yard sale, or were set aside waiting to finally be donated to the salvation army or goodwill or a box of clothes still sitting in the garage or closet you just can't part with because your child only wore them twice and you spent good money on them. Well, why throw it out or donate it to be resold when you can swap it for nice things that you need. Like... if you need a jacket for your kid because walmart hasn't started selling them yet and it snowed last week (you'll understand if you live in Montana).
You recycle the clothes, toys, etc through this online community, helping reduce waste, helping out other people, making friends and saving yourself money! I am still new to it but I have already fallen in love with the idea and now visit the site a few times a day.
