It's really hard to find out stuff about wiki hosts by searching online because all the search results think you're looking for a wiki about ethics rather than trying to find out *about* different wiki platforms and their ethics.

So it seems that the crossover between 1. people willing to contribute to/share a sustainability wiki and 2. people who object to Google is HUGE.

Which means if I stay on Google Sites I will never reach all the potential contributors. So I'm searching for an ethical wiki host. Someone suggested Wikia but it looks like it's just for fandom stuff?

There's also Wikidot but I know nothing about it.

I'm worried about putting the work in, building up the wiki again on a new platform and then discovering people have a problem with that one too. It's bad enough having to up sticks and lose everything ONCE...

OK, a LOT of people are telling us to stop using Google Sites, so I guess we have to listen...

Pass It On boosted

@pass_it_on This is a great project!! Is it just by contacting you that we can add info to the wiki? I'm not familiar with google sites but I'm definitely up for providing info / links to some Canadian organizations that take odds n ends when i have a chance to put the info together :)

one good one off the top of my head is Diabetes Canada, they will take a lot of electronics and household items as well as the usual clothing items and in some areas they'll actually come and pick up the donation for you, which can be really helpful if you can't transport items easily. they're not exactly a grassroots organization or anything (theyre pretty massive and have a huge budget), but they are v convenient if there's a lot you want to get rid of but don't want going to the landfill.

here's a link to their list of what they will / won't take:

Pass It On is a wiki for sharing ways to pass on useful items that would otherwise get thrown away.

is great, but is better.

So we're actively looking for details of organisations who can reuse odd items such as (but not limited to): plastic plant-pots, duvets, Christmas trees, knickers, jewellery, used stamps...

We know there are people out there who can use the stuff we'd otherwise throw away.

We know there are people who want to dispose of unwanted stuff responsibly but don't want to spend all their time and energy searching for places to give it to.

We want to connect those two groups and reduce the amount of unnecessary landfill waste.

You can help! Follow, boost, share your info.
