An RCG is defined as a network of people who provide free trade goods and services (free) with volunteering and contributions. Because it is a radical concept, there are even some that are not 100% gift savings. This directory needs readers to suggest networks to add by contacting us.

RCGs are growing rapidly around the world, we are in the midst of transitioning to a shared world. This directory represents only a small fraction of which exist. If you can’t find an RCG near you or one that fits your needs or ideas, it’s very easy to create one yourself. It can be as simple as a group of mobile messages (with signal, telegram or whatsapp). Later we will write a guide on how to do it. You can always contact us and we will be happy to help you.
