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.
