Take it if you Need it Exchange Wall

Home > Brisbane > Markets | Free
Published May 24th 2010
If you're not already on the freecycling bandwagon, now is a good time to jump aboard. Freecycling, the latest environmental craze to sweep the globe, involves either giving away your unwanted items for someone else to use again or exchanging them for something you need. By giving these old items a new lease of life, users are preventing them from ending up as landfill and also reducing the amount of materials and energy being used to make new items. Environmental concerns aside, freecycling also means you can get something you need for free.

Freecycling can take place as an informal exchange between friends or on a larger scale, such as the Take it if you Need it Exchange Wall, an innovative new project at South Bank.

Every second Wednesday (beginning 5 May), the Exchange Wall will be set up for the general public. Visitors to the Wall may take an item, leave an item or exchange their item for something else from the wall. Until 30 June, the theme is music so music related objects (like music magazines, CDs and records or even an old instrument) are encouraged. The Exchange Wall will be located at South Bank behind the Queensland Conservatorium and everyone is welcome to participate.

This initiative gives people the chance to clear their house of unwanted clutter, and gives those who need it a chance to pick up something for free. Everyone's a winner!

The Take it if you Need it Exchange Wall project is the brain child of Elizabeth Woods and Kevin Wilson, in conjunction with Artworkers Alliance and South Bank Corporation.
