GOOD reports:

It’s move out day at colleges around the country this week. So what happens to all that stuff students are leaving behind? Sadly, most of it, usable or not, will end up in the waste stream. But at Yale, at least, the softer castoffs like clothes and pillows will be salvaged and eventually offered to the community through a new nonprofit that’s trying to make free a workable price for a local economy. Meet GiftFlow.
