The Great British Clear Out

junksniper - the home of freecommerceYou could be forgiven for thinking I’m about to launch into colonic irrigation.

Worry not. Some of you might be aware I’m having a grand declutter here at Green Towers.

You name it, if it isn’t beautiful or useful then it’s out! Lucky for Mr and Little Miss Green they happen to be two of the most beautiful people I know 😉

But what’s a green warrioress to do when faced with piles of unwanted stuff?

Give it to someone who loves it of course!

That’s where comes in. connects people wanting to re-home or recycle unwanted items with people looking for them.

It’s all in the spirit of giving; everything is free and it frees up your conscience too because you won’t be landfilling perfectly functional items.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a die hard Freecycle fan, but I do love a new initiative and I especially love the funky, fresh web design. Lots of eye candy, pretty pics and oh-so-exciting ‘time remaining’ info that makes you want to snap that bargainous baby up in an instant. You can search for items and it’s simple to register.

screenshot of junksniper is nationwide, so anyone in the UK can take part. Whether you have an old sofa, TV or set of paving slabs to rid yourself of, you can be sure someone will be looking for that very item. Effectively you’re bagging yourself some free space, a free removals service and that warm, fuzzy feeling that comes from giving things away.

Phil Tabor, the brains and beauty behind Junksniper says “The idea behind was to create a state-of-the-art, user-friendly user interface that will encourage more people to start recycling. Millions of us have household clutter lying around unused, and you can bet your life there is someone out there who would find a use for it. provides a simple, fast and easy-to-use platform to make this happen.”

It’s new, it’s fresh, so jump in right now and start sniping that erm, junk. Be a good citizen and get the Great British Clear Out rolling.
Britain needs you!
