Swap, Have Fun and Save the Environment
Any site that's helped reduce our carbon footprint by 10.7 million pounds is great in my book. Swap.com lets people hold swaps online and hold them offline too. You can swap for yourself, for your school or for your favorite cause. They have an iPhone app coming soon (this Android user will have to wait). Each swap is $0.50 to $1.00 plus the cost of shipping if handled online (price includes delivery confirmation). I can't fault them for that because they deserve to make money. It's a social enterprise built on a great idea. Heck, they even give advice on how to swap safely. I'm a fan of their Swap4Schools program, where school employees can create classroom wishlists.
