The first Weggeefwinkel was created by a group of activists, artists and anarchists with the aim to criticize the consumerist tendency of accumulating goods. The Weggeefwinkel (Free Shop) is a place where everyone is welcome to take whatever the shop provides, without the exchange of money. Every shop is run on a volunteer basis and they are independent, but connected to each other through a website.
Everything is free of charge.
People can find a broad variety of objects, which are free of charge.
