Item details

The Curbside Object Status Tag facilitates the smooth operation of the informal sidewalk gift economy. By indicating the condition of an object, you are helping trash-pickers make an informed decision about whether to take the object home with them.

To use the tag simply check the appropriate boxes on the tag then affix it to the object that is to be placed on the curb.

Space is provided to elaborate on the condition of the object or to provide helpful information to it’s future owner. These are also ideal for someone who is moving and has tons of stuff they don't want to cart around. They can also be used during a stoop or garage sale to attract more interest from folks passing by.

The tags are bundled in packs of 12.

Perfect gift for the guy or gal who has everything....and has begun giving it away!

******Background*********

The practice of leaving useful but no-longer-wanted objects out for others to find is widespread. Objects are often left on the curb or in hallways of apartment buildings. Until now there hasn’t been a quick and simple way to communicate to passers-by important information about the object. This has lead to inefficiencies in the system such as people dragging home objects only to find out they are not appropriate for their home, and people passing by objects fearful that they are deficient in some way. The Curbside Object Status tag solves this problem.
