We at WWOMP HQ are often asked what the meaning of WWOMP is, WWOMP is the acronym for The Worldwide Open Marketplace which is pronounced WOMP.
WWOMP, founded by entrepreneurial duo Baronne Mouton and Rob Schultz (both Durban born), is a smart new marketplace where people can get what they want from others around them for the the price they want to pay. It takes traditional classifieds and opens it up to a more connected audience. WWOMP empowers people with more ways to interact with their neighbours and fulfill their needs. This is the new dawn of Community Commerce.
WWOMP, gives local communities an easy way to connect, trade and share things in everyday life.
Using Google Maps geolocation technology, people within a local vicinity can ask for practically any product or service real time. They simply post a WWOMP for specific product or service they need, want to sell, or wish to give away for free (similar to Freecycle) either online at wwomp.com or using the iPhone or Android mobile apps which are currently in development.
WWOMP allows people in close proximity to get notifications from others who are either looking to offer their items, time or talents, or receive them. Once a suitable offer is found, the two parties agree and accept, and the transaction is complete. Items requested and offered can be linked to other local advertising or shared through social networks to attract even wider interest.
The service is completely free. Everyone could do with a little helping hand and WWOMP connects communities – people can reach other people and/or local businesses and vice versa. All someone has to do is WWOMP it, and wait for the offers from those around them to roll in!
WWOMP provides an opportunity for people with tight budgets, clutter and busy schedules to earn extra money on their own terms. Or they can give them away for free. However they want to play it, it’s in their hands. Items can be found or listed in the categories of WANTED, OFFER, DEALS and FREE STUFF.

Your rubbish could be someone else’s fortune, so lets help the environment and keep our world cleaner by recycling your unwanted things and keep them out of the rubbish dumps.
In todays modern world many of us are unaware how easy it is to recycle our unwanted things and often disgard those things once they no longer has a need for them or they have upgraded to something better. There are many people around you who may be less fortunate than you.
On WWOMP you can Free Cycle your things for free. You can list just about anything which is legal. Some examples of the things you could Freecycle could be your old sofa, mobile phone, an old chair or not having another baby why not recycle those old baby clothes.
Recycling matters! Help our environment and here are some reasons why you need to Free Cycle.
Recycling is good for the environment and the economy, saving money and creating jobs. Most of the recycling we collected is reprocessed using sustainable markets and put to the best possible use to make new cans, tins, newspapers and plastic bottles.
Recycling conserves resources
When we freecycle, used materials are converted into new products, reducing the need for raw materials such as trees, metal and oil, which helps save resources and protects natural habitats for the future.
Recycling saves energy
Making new products from recycled, rather than raw materials, uses considerably less energy and also means that energy does not have to be used to extract and transport raw materials.
Recycling helps protect the environment
Freecycling reduces the need for extracting (mining, quarrying and logging) and processing raw materials all of which create substantial air and water pollution. In addition, as recycling saves energy, through recycling alone. So, recycling is a really easy way to do something positive to help tackle climate change.
