In the past couple of years we have seen many innovative start ups utilise the sharing that is possible within digital networks to provide novel consumer services. Whether you’re saving money and resources by sharing stuff with your friends through Neighbourgoods or learning new hobbies by tapping into your communities’ peer to peer skillset through Skillshare there are a number of ways to save money, acquire goods & services and even turn a profit by deploying a more discerning eye to what’s already around you.
Collaborative Consumption in partnership with the Collaborative Fund have created an infographic to showcase how much profit is lying fallow in your homestead and neighbourhood. It represents the first attempt to understand the ecology of sharing which these numerous services permit and illustrates how much people stand to earn by making the most of their idle assets.
The Collaborative Home infographic looks inside our homes at all the assets – spaces, stuff, time, and skills – that can be shared, rented and swapped through Collaborative Consumption marketplaces, and what that means for our bank accounts!
