Dr David Greenfield asks Adam Woodhall, spokesperson for Extinction Rebellion and Cat Fletcher, head of media at Freegle to explain how sharing will deliver a less resource-greedy world.

Fresh from April’s Extinction Rebellion protests in London, and with plenty of stories from the heart of the activity, Adam Woodhall told the CLGdotTV audience that sharing thinking about use of resources via protests sets the stage for sort of practical action that can be facilitated by organisations like Freegle.

Freegle was founded in 2009 and aims to increase reuse and reduce landfill by offering a free online service where people can give away and ask for things that would otherwise be thrown away. Cat Fletcher said that the impact of Extinction Rebellion for the organisation and its 1000+ volunteers was immediate and positive. She stressed that the benefits of sharing are not just about the environment either. There is a human connection made whenever something is passed from one person to another, to become part of a different life.

As Reuse Manager at Brighton and Hove City Council, Cat’s day job is equally concerned with saving stuff the council doesn’t need any more for further use - in unbelievable quantities – which, as she explains is a far better outcome than recycling, where products have to be taken apart (more use of resources) before anything can be done with them.
