Have more food than you need, or battling to use it before use-by dates?
Having a clear out of household items?
Got one or two annoying items sitting around the house that you don't need, but they still have some use left in them?
Olio is a great app where you can share these items for free.
Recent items shared by the SHC members on Olio in Harborough district include: two rainbow kale plants, tins of soup, half a bottle of Chanel perfume, teabags, a car seat, an electric heater... and a cuddly toy.
If you are passionate about reducing food waste you can take a further step and volunteer to be a Food Waste Hero - picking up and distributing 'nearly done' food from supermarkets to prevent it from being binned.
To use Olio's words... "Fight waste. Help your neighbours. Save our planet. Feel amazing!"
