A couple months ago I expounded on the difficulties of glass recycling. A friend on Facebook suggested selling bottles on Etsy or eBay as craft supplies. That sounded like too much trouble, but it got me thinking. Once I’d accumulated a bin full of marginally interesting empties, I posted to Freecycle New Orleans. Xy was skeptical, but I had four or five people express an interest. It took a few days, but one of these people finally took the bottles off my hands. You can insert your tired cliche about trash and treasure here.
Meanwhile my Freecycle request for a pair of outdoor speakers has sadly gone unanswered.
