Share, Borrow or Rent Tools and Items
Some tools in the house such as the hammer, screwdriver, electric drill, handsaw, ladder and toolbox are not used frequently. If you have these tools, share themÂ with your relatives and friends. If you don’t have the tools, you can ask around and borrow them. By sharing and borrowing,Â you reduce the need to buy new tools and free up storage space.
You can also borrowÂ or share other items like newspapers, magazines, party decorations, cutlery, kitchen appliances,Â audiovisual equipment, CDs, DVDs, etc.
BlockPooling is a social network for neighbourhoods and you can use the platform to share and borrow items from your neighbours.
Rent Instead of Buying
Renting items is cheaper than buying them, and by reusingÂ an item among several people, it helps toÂ reduce the resources used inÂ its production and packaging, and creates less waste disposal after its use.
