I'm very much in favor of Collaborative Consumption. I think it helps reduce cost and waste and brings people and, hopefully, communities together.
Part of our goal as "Less Impact Fam(ily)" is to not buy someting if we don't need it and to see if we can borrow or share it as the first option.
I've seen this coming together happen after a natural disaster. What if it was something that you feel comfortable doing every day?
