Freek it! is a cross between a social network site and a freegan site.
The problem with free stuff sites like gumtree etc is that we don’t just want ANYONE to have our free stuff.
We want it to go to a GOOD HOME.
So you have your buddies – known as FREEKS who you list- each has a trust rating- they don’t know what theirs is.
But the higher the rating the more access they have to your free kit lists.
Your lists of free kit are like trade goods.
Trade goods- stuff you are prepared to give away to people who will use it and you like. These you list.
For everything you list you get a trade credit.
If someone wants one they send the postage, or one of their trade goods you like. If postage you also get a trade credit. You use the trade credit when you want someone else’s thing for free and they don’t want something of yours.
You browse each others trade goods. If your rating is enough their stuff will show up. If your rating is too low it just won’t show up.
