What is Freebs?

Freebs is a classifieds platform for free things only. Our goal is to get as many people as we can to participate in the Circular Economy which is a collection of efforts that promote the maximum use of the things we produce or consume. The aim of a Circular Economy is to reduce the environmental and socio-economic impacts of our consumption habits.

To help people participate in the Circular Economy, Freebs matches users who are looking to hand off items they no longer need instead of throwing them out with users who could give those items a second life.

On the other hand, if you are looking for something to use, convert into something else, fix or repair then, Freebs aims to be your go-to platform to find what you need to get your project done!

There are no prices and our users are not obligated to pay for posting or picking items up.
