Did you know that for every pound of new goods that are produced, 71 pounds of waste follows as a result of the manufacturing process? This week NBCUniversal has partnered with the fantastic and ever growing popular sharing site yerdle to show you how to minimize your impact on the planet, simply by sharing!
You can use the blog app above to join the party and post stuff that you would like to share, as well as find the things you want. It's all about giving new life to used items and helping each other along the way! Why not grab a bunch of your friends and family together for a fun swap party and see what items you can share? Use the blog app above to get started with some fantastic ideas. If you prefer to swap online, the blog app can get you started with that as well! Be sure to help spread the word by sharing your personal stories of sharing by using the hashtag #ShareandTell across your social media site conversations.
The blog app above also includes an Eco Quiz where you can find out how green you are. Be sure to also check out 7 Ways to Share Your Stuff where you can get great tips on how to get started sharing within your own community.
