Did you know that Winnipeg is home to some really neat sharing & lending programs?
Why should we share vs own individually?
Less production means less extraction of natural resources!
Access over ownership and the sharing economy are important pillars that contribute to a circular economy. By shifting to access over ownership, the responsibility falls to manufacturers to make longer lasting and more efficient products that are designed with repair and reuse as primary considerations. For more information on sharing economy, check out Waste Reduction Week in Canada.
