Freecycle DC Highlight: Boxster Child Seat

Freecycle is a movement across the country designed to make sure that nothing ever gets chucked into a landfill until it’s been on an email list for at least a few weeks, and DC has their very own yahoo group dedicated to such a concept. Today’s highlighted message comes to from someone who likely drives a better car than you, probably has a better job than you, and likely goes to sleep each night on a pile of money surrounded by beautiful women.

They still need a carseat for their Porsche.

WANTED: Boxster Car Seat

I would hope to not have to turn in my wheels with a little one! Does anyone have the Tequipment car seat which can be installed in the passenger seat of the Boxster? I realize it involves a trip to the dealer for proper installation and airbag deactivation, but hoped I might pick up one from someone whose little one has outgrown it. Can pick up anywhere, anytime. Thanks!

Good to know they’ll meet you anywhere.

    Yes, I see the humor inherent in this post but I hope that you don’t mean to suggest that rich people should reuse/recycle less than poorer/average people.

    I’m just sensing the irony that someone who can afford the payments on a Boxster is asking for a free car-seat instead of offering to buy one, used.

    Gotta check you Tom. If he’s packing a baby seat, he will not have supermodel orgies. He will be very married.

    Wives of men who need to drive a Boxster, especially after becoming a Dad, are notorious for taking half and the kid if he’s found with another in his bed.

    Who says it’s a man?

    Tom, you surely missed the point about freecycle. The important thing here is that someone is willing to take something “gently” used – whether they can afford to pay or not is not the issue but there is someone who believes in not having to spend a lot of the earth’s resources by buying a new one.

    The worse crime is seeing people throw out perfectly re-usable items at the curb when they can donate it to the many agencies that could distribute it to those who need it.
