Transcript of "10 Collaborative Consumption Websites"

  1. 1. 10 websitescollaborative consumption
  2. 2. Collaborative ConsumptionWe’ve recently written a blog post on the post crisis consumer(read it here!). Sharing, re-using and re-inventing: We’re fascinated bythe amount of interesting websites that have surfaced over the lastcouple of years. Here are 10 of our favorites. If you have a favoritethat’s not included, please do let us know, we’d love to hear from you!
  3. 3. 1. Task Rabbit Post a task you need doing and state how much you’d be willing to pay for it. Task Rabbit matches you with an helpful individual in your Area to help you out. This site Is used lots by pensioners who want to do a little work that’s helpful to others (USA!).
  4. 4. 2. Freecycle Like they say, one man’s trash is another’s treasure. Got something you don’t want or need anymore? Don’t throw it away, just post it on this website and your unwanted object is sure to make somebody else in your neighborhood very happy.
  5. 5. 3. Swap.com Tit for Tat! If you have something you don’t want, you can upload a picture of it and swap it for something you do want. You can swap items locally or internationally, you’re responsible for postage costs, but the service is totally free.
  6. 6. 4. Zip Car Does everybody need a car? No. It would be totally impractical if everybody had one. Zip car lets you share cars with people in your area. This is a green option and the way forward for sure!
  7. 7. 5. Lending Club This website allows individuals to get or give loans. The lenders get a little bit of interest and everyone wins.
  8. 8. 6. Couch Surfing This is not just a website, it’s a community. Couch surfing allows you to open up your home to like- minded travellers and in return lets you stay in a friendly home for free wherever you wish to go.
  9. 9. 6. One Block off the Grid This is a website that allows consumers to group together in order to get the best deals on solar energy.
  10. 10. 7. Barclays Cycle Hire Thanks for the bikes, Boris! Help yourself to bicycles all around town, they’re totally free for the first half hour and cost a small fee for longer rides.
  11. 11. 7. Share some sugar Just like in the good old days: Knock on your neighbors door to borrow the missing ingredient for that cake you’re baking. This is an American website that lowers your carbon footprint while recreating a neighborhood community.
  12. 12. 8. Liftshare.com Find someone else who’s going where you are. Share the ride, share the cost and lower your carbon footprint while making new acquaintances.
  13. 13. 9. swapstyle We get bored of clothing easily. Instead of throwing last season’s jacket away, swap it for something you want.
  14. 14. 10. Ourgoods.org This is a bartering website. Upload what you have or can provide and get matched up to what you want.
