Free service on Off-Grid web site attempts to circumvent money as a means of exchange.
Off-Grid, the web magazine promoting living outside the system of water, power and phone grids, has launched a new service for readers.
Using software on the site, readers can offer goods or service for barter. They can upload their offers or requirements for free.
Off-Grid Barter co-ordinator Andy Tucker said: "Barter is a local phneomenon. Most exchanges happen within a short distance. We hope to build up the number of users so anyone in the US, Canada or the UK can be fairly sure they will be speaking to like-minded people in their local neighborhood.
