Freegle is a UK-based network that allows locals to seek out items other people people are looking to get rid of – including refrigerators, sofas, old doors and windows. Now the Brighton Freegle group needs your help to create an entire house built from waste. They’re looking for unwanted building materials and even non-recyclable items such as toothbrushes, floppy discs, polystyrene or Styrofoam. The house will serve as a community sustainability center and it will be a model for low-cost, low-carbon housing using local waste.
