Sharing is fun

Not owning every item yourself means that your corners, shelves and cupboards won’t be so cluttered. You save space and money when you borrow or rent items, cars and facilities. Sharing is also a clever way to get acquainted with your neighbours and meet new people!

Savings: You can save a lot of money by not buying everything yourself. Renting out your home or guest room via a service like Airbnb can also earn you some money.

Remember this: Legislation concerning the sharing economy is not comprehensive yet. Renting out your home or borrowing a neighbour’s car may complicate things like taxation and insurance.

Reducing your carbon footprint: Energy and material used in the manufacturing and use of goods is saved when not everyone has to own a product.
