I am part of Freecycle, a community online group that gives away "free stuff" and save them from going to landfill if they have a few more years of life left. You can also ask for stuff and see if anyone has it lying around, not being used...
I have just given away on freecycle:
1. Portable air conditioner
2. A big brown leather bag/nappy bag
3. A bag of toiletries/personal care products
I'm still sometimes amazed at what people would take...or offer. You are not allowed to offer your children on Freecycle (!)
The bag of personal care products are not all new. But some are good brands. So some people want them! I don't think everyone joins Freecycle for environmental reasons, but I don't care, as long as they are reducing stuff going to landfill and reducing crap at my house!
