It’s good to share. Here’s why...

And it isn’t just about making life easier for us (although that’s a big part of why sharing’s so great). Choosing to share over dumping our stuff (or buying something which might not get much use) is a positive step forward in respecting the environment, and reducing the waste we produce.

And the good news is, sharing’s everywhere.

The internet has given us the power to pass on items that have done their job – selling or swapping them for other items we do need. And the high street is full of second-hand shops – furniture, clothing and electrical goods are all things that can find another home when yours doesn’t have space for them anymore.

Recycling, upcycling and passing on what we can’t use is a big part of everyday life. And we don’t just do it for free, either. We can trade things that would otherwise just gather dust. We can use them to generate an income, for us as individuals and for our community.

It’s an economy with the planet at its heart, and its success hinges on the people who take part. Whether we get involved as individuals or as part of an organisation, sharing is an active way to contribute to our communities, and to society as a whole.

It’s fair, it’s responsible, and it opens the door to a world of opportunities. What’s not to love?
