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.
