Re: [greenyes] Twin Cities Free Market


Dianna,

What a great idea! Such a successful program fill me with questions: Who runs your website? Is it run by Eureka Recycling? Are you a non-profit organization? How is this program funded (if you do not mind sharing this information)? Thank you so much for sharing your success story, I look forward to your response.

Thank you,

exchanged on
www.twincitiesfreemarket.org !



With the city of Saint Paul's support, we've grown this program over the
past seven years and now have 15,000 Twin Cities residents visit the site
each month and exchange over 7,000 items a year - everything from a 5
bedroom house to a CD, landscape rocks to a blanket. There are over 300-400
new listings on the site each week and many of the items snatched up within
hours.



Free Market Rhode Island just started this Spring and they already have
5,000 users and 7 tons of stuff exchanged. Not a bad start! Check it out -
