Go Green: Bartering is back

(KMOV) – Why buy something new when you can swap it for free? Swaptree.com allows users to trade books, CDs, DVDs and video games.

“I was going to try to donate these or sell them on my own, so I might as well trade them for something else that I want,” says Rachel Flavin, Swaptree user.

How it works: users post a list of items they want to get rid of along with a wish list of things they want. It doesn’t matter if the item is new or use - as long as someone out there has it on their wish list, the site will make a match and a swap gets made.

With Swaptree, instead of going out and buying something new, save the money, and make a trade. It’s good for the environment and for the wallet.
