Here, you can trade/share/give away items/services for other items/services
To create a solidarity economy and a sustainable environment that makes it easier to recycle our items and provide services to each other. By limiting the things you buy, you are helping reduce the waste produced. *Note: this is an experimental project put on by the Econ 243 (Political Economy of Race, Class, Gender). Suggestions are readily accepted and feedback is highly recommended.
How it works:
1. Describe (or post a picture) of the item you hope to trade/share/give away or the services you can provide
2. Specify what you would want to trade it for (ex. a ride to Natick Mall for pie & cookies)
3. Wait. Others will look through posts and contact you offering good/services in exchange.
