About the Sharing Economy

Have you ever bought a tool – a resource – to use it once or twice, then never touch it again? Many of us have been there – but we can do better.

Sharing reduces the importance of owning items and promotes public access instead. This is known as access over ownership.

Access over ownership makes resources available for rent, reducing the need to own.

This encourages manufacturers to improve product designs so that they are more compatible with a circular life cycle.

Ever worn a dress or tuxedo once for a wedding? Consider renting your outfits in the future. It may save you hundreds of dollars while avoiding excess textile production.

The following resources can help you share resources with your local community.

    Ways to share:

    1.  Internet resources (i.e. tutorial videos and online courses)

    3.  Bike share & Public transit
    4.  Rental services or lenderies (i.e. tools)
    5.  Clothing rental services
