What's the difference between freecycle and trash nothing?

The trash nothing site is simply an alternate interface for existing freecycle groups around the world. The site was designed to make freecycling easier and solve a lot of the problems that the existing groups had from using Yahoo Groups (such as spam and email overload among other things).

Since freecycling began over a decade ago on Yahoo Groups, freecycling has spread to many new sites, groups and apps. Currently trash nothing supports the original Freecycle, Full Circles and ReUseIt groups on Yahoo Groups, Freegle groups, and groups powered by trash nothing. We're always open to add support for new groups and sites when possible but sadly many of the other sites don't have the features necessary for trash nothing to access their groups.
