Collaborative consumption—Share N Save in SA
‘Collaborative consumption' is about people sharing access to products or services, rather than having individual ownership. This is good for your wallet and great for the environment and for society. When we share products, we share the costs and we also share the energy and resources that go into the production of ‘stuff'. Time magazine has named this movements as one of ten ideas that will change the world. Modern technology is making it easier and cheaper to share, rent and exchange our tangible and intangible assets.
This growing movement has websites or apps for cars, food, clothes, holidays, housing, bikes, finance, education, desks, tasks and even errands. Share N Save, is South Australia's new collaborative consumption website. This is a great example of the sharing economy. The sharing activities taking place across SA include community gardens and fruit and vegetable swaps; great for keeping purchasing and produce local.
