Good idea from France
In the context of a programme to limit waste, 24 campsites on the coast in the Vendée department have decided to set up a system of “Give away boxes“ (boîte à dons). Items that are still serviceable – camping gear and accessories, toys, magazines, books, parasols and much more besides – no longer need to end up in the rubbish bins but can be stacked on shelves erected for that purpose and await a new owner.
The idea of give-away boxes (Tauschboxen) is becoming more popular and spreading in Germany. You find them mainly in public places.
