A platform that people can use to host travelers, find couchsurfing hosts, and meet like-minded people. Trustroots is being built by a small team of activists who felt that the world of sharing is being taken over by corporations trying to monetize people’s willingness to help each other.
I just joined that platform to check it out and I like it and I have access to hosts all around the world. However I noticed the website uses google-analytics, which means they collect some data… thus they are not trade-free. But they point to that in their privacy page and explain how to opt out of analytics tracking (https://www.trustroots.org/privacy). As a side node they also promote their page on trade-based websites like facebook, instagram or twitter as you can see here https://www.directory.trade-free.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Pasted-9.jpg or here: https://www.directory.trade-free.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Pasted-10.jpg – but all in all they seem to be honest and don’t want to make a profit out of their users.
