Fighting for freerecyling

History, I need your help

I want to chart the wider history of the Freecycling movement. So if you know the date of a key event please contact me andyswarbs [at) What sparked me to this is a new news article on This states that Deron Beal sent out the first email which launched TFN in the year 2000. This surprised me since I thought it was 2003. And in fact the latter is true – that’s what the TFN website states – the date May 1st 2003 can be found on their History & Background Information page. I really wish journalists would check their factoids!

  1. Hi Andy:
    I’ve been maintaining a media backgrounder since 2004. I update it daily. Perhaps you can find some useful historical pegs here –
