Freecycle@Work is a free online application for anyone to use when establishing Freecycle programs at their companies and educating coworkers about reuse. Freecycle@Work is supported by Intuit and built using Intuit QuickBase.
Designed with the business user in mind, Intuit's QuickBase is the fastest, easiest and most flexible way to help teams work together. QuickBase provides one platform where workgroups can easily create unlimited applications to automate business processes, improve communication and collaborate online. QuickBase applications solve critical business problems and help improve productivity and efficiency because they are tailored by the user to match the exact workflow and unique needs of their team - something complex point solutions or generic spreadsheets simply can’t match.
Used by more than half of the Fortune 100, QuickBase is a proven team collaboration platform that’s perfect for business users - regardless of size, location or industry - while delivering the visibility and control IT executives need in large companies.
The Freecycle Network is a global organization with over 7 million users engaged in the exchange of items for reuse rather than disposal. The goal of the Freecycle Network is to build a worldwide gifting movement that reduces waste, saves precious resources & eases the burden on our landfills while enabling our members to benefit from the strength of a larger community.
The Freecycle concept has since spread to over 85 countries, where there are thousands of local groups representing millions of members -- people helping people and 'changing the world one gift at a time.' As a result, Freecycle groups are currently keeping over 500 tons a day out of landfills! This amounts to five times the height of Mt. Everest in the past year alone, when stacked in garbage trucks!
By giving freely with no strings attached, members of The Freecycle Network help instill a sense of generosity of spirit as they strengthen local community ties and promote environmental sustainability and reuse. People from all walks of life have joined together to turn trash into treasure.
