Collaborative Consumption

Community-sharing initiatives change the way consumers exchange
Implications - Renting, sharing and exchanging has never been as collaborative as it is today. Every day, new initiatives are springing up that are aimed at connecting community members and helping them consume in a way that benefits the community as a whole, as well as each individual person. From car-sharing services and telephone co-op systems to cohousing and more, these joint consumption efforts augment the way consumers interact with one another and contribute to the creation of a better, more collaborative and caring society.
