I am always begging my friends at the Greenbelt Community Center to give me their packing peanuts for my pottery shipments. And they are very generous about it, but I usually need to buy more anyways. Recently, one of them clued me in to Freecycle.org, and it turns out that my town of Silver Spring has a very active Freecycling community. I haven't paid for a peanut since! This past Friday, I posted a "WANTED: PEANUTS" ad, and on Saturday I drove around filling my car with free peanuts. I have also unloaded my old bicycle, a weed wacker, and a shoe rack. And gained a pair of adirondack chairs. Not only is Freecycling good for the environment, it's fun!
