Brooklyn Eco-Eatery to Host Enormous FreeMeet


Treehugger loves Freecycle™, and the FreeMeets are Freecycle™ at its best. The Freecycle™ New York City Solar-Powered FreeMeet is coming up, and it looks to be a delightful day of swap meet fun in the sun. Taking over an entire Brooklyn block, it's being described as "a free flea market meets street fair" by the organizers. Bring anything you want to give away and take home things you can use (provided it's appropriate for all ages and can fit in a grocery cart, so don't expect to bring or find furniture or X-rated movies). The Habana Outpost Eco-Eatery at 757 Fulton Street will host the event; Build It Green! NYC, New York's only nonprofit building supply store, is providing garment racks. Participants are encouraged to bring wire hangers, which will be recycled after the event. BIG! will truck away leftover items and donate them to charity.

Early drop-offs are welcome at Habana Outpost from 6-10 p.m. on Friday June 23rd. The event proper runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday June 24th and is absolutely free. ::RecycleThisNYC via ::Freecyle™ New York City
