The sharing generation

Sharing is in vogue. Whether it's a room in your house, a seat in your car, the tools in your shed, your bike, your kayak. Sharing is the way to go.

More and more people are discovering the benefits of the emerging sharing economy. It works on the basis that you give other people the opportunity to make use of extra capacity that's going to waste. Sometimes it's free, other times there's a charge. It's up to the sharers to decide.

A spare room in a flat could help pay the rent or mortgage with lodgers, students or B&B guests. Sharing your car on regular journeys or by other arrangement can help with the running costs. Sharing sports, gardening and other equipment can ease pressure on space and your pocket.

What all this adds up to is a reduced pressure on the environment by reducing manufacture and the corresponding CO2e.

It is difficult to quantify the carbon savings of some Actions. In this case we allocate a nominal 10kg CO2e per year. This is not reflective of the actual savings which may be significantly more, but to show that you are making a difference. If possible, we will provide representative calculations at a later date.
