Too good to throw away?

Too good to throw away?

It’s all too easy to throw away items when we’ve fallen out of love with them - you’re probably a different person now to who you were years ago when you first bought that mustard coloured settee and matching armchairs.

But what if there was a different way of getting rid of the things that no longer bring you joy, or that you simply do not have space to keep?

In Essex it’s easy and quick to pass on your unwanted items and you may not even need to leave your home to do so.

There are many local projects, which not only support Essex residents, but also benefit local communities. So, by de-cluttering your home, you’re also giving back.

If you have an item that is too good to throw away, find out more about how you can Love Essex and support great causes across the county.

And it you’re on the lookout for anything from furniture and clothing, to garden ornaments and children’s toys, check out your local Freegle site – a space where you can give or receive items for free!
