Found this, a item was shipped in a recycled food box it seems, I can only imagine the grief the seller got for doing this, as on eBay your meant to ship all your items in armored boxes with free gold plating and have them hand delivered before a buyer has even bought it if the way buyers go on is anything to go by. I once shipped a t shirt in a unused burger box (I was buying rejected packing material in bulk) which I turned inside out and all hell broke lose so.

Freecycle has been around for a long time now and had alot of ups and downs. The basic idea is people just giving away stuff that would usually be thrown away anything from computer parts to cars. Of course some eBay users go to the groups to get there stock, pretty shameful that selling on what basically is a charity gift. Anyway have a look for a group in your local town (its world wide) you never know, you might find something 🙂
