One of the major barriers to getting rid of stuff is that it’s not always easy to figure out what the heck to do with it all.
If you throw away reusable items, you’re being wasteful. If you stick your things out on the curb with a “Free! No Bedbugs!” sign, there’s a chance the landlord or super will get mad — and an even bigger chance that nobody will believe that the stuff is, indeed, safe to take (making you both wasteful and a litterer), so that’s out.
The ethical and logical action to take with reusable items is obviously to donate it all, and we want to make that as easy as possible for you.
