I love watching movies but one of the biggest problems with movies is after you have watched the DVD, what do you do with it? I usually just throw it on a shelf and let it collect dust until the time comes that I want to watch it again, The problem with that is that usually that isn’t for years. So why do we save these things when we could trade them in using a service such as SwitchPlanet.com which lets you trade DVD’s, CD’s, Games and Books with other members for free.
SwitchPlanet has a huge amount of stuff available for trade with its ever growing number of members. SwitchPlanet has a great mission statement:
“It is our goal to establish SwitchPlanet.com as a premier online community that is committed to helping reduce the impact waste is having on the planet by trading the things we no longer use to get the things we want.”
That’s a great way to look at it, instead of going out and buying that DVD someone could recycle theirs and trade for it, that means one less DVD needed to be made and not only that but also one less DVD will end up in a landfill.
SwitchPlanet not only talks about helping they also support organizations through cash and product contributions. Such as, The Red Cross, Boys and Girls Club, The Nature Conservancy, American Cancer Society, and Child’s Play Charity.
SwitchPlanet sounds like a great service, I would love to get rid of all those old DVD’s I don’t watch and those old CD’s I don’t listen to, this seems like a great way to do it.
