Bartering, believe it or not, is a great way to help the environment! Bartering websites, allow you to trade for items instead of spending money. It cuts back on waste, since instead of throwing out what you don't need, and buying new things, you can give the old to someone who wants it... in exchange for something new that you want!
Bartering websites are gaining popularity all over Canada, with members exchanging everything from books, movies and furniture, to negotiating apartment swaps for low-cost family vacations. With sections for business bartering between companies, vehicle trade and services like music lessons and hairdressing, you can trade out the old for new without having to spend a dime.
