Society is at a crossroads. We can either continue on the path of consumption at any cost, or we can make new choices that will lead to a happier, more rewarding life, while helping to preserve the planet for future generations. Unfortunately, we can't all afford to install solar panels or buy a Prius. Does this mean we are doomed in our quest to live a truly sustainable life? Not at all. Collaborative consumption is a new way of living, in which access is valued over ownership, experience is valued over material possessions, and "mine" becomes "ours," and everyone's needs are met without waste. Sharing is Good is your roadmap to this emerging economic paradigm. Discover:* The history and development of collaborative consumption* The benefits and challenges of a sharing lifestyle* A wealth of resources from around the world to help make sharing easy and safe The beauty of the sharing economy is that it is free, so anyone can participate and make a difference. No one has to sacrifice their individuality or comfort. Best of all, when we're actively engaged in sharing, personal connections are rekindled and we become invested in our communities again. Beth Buczynski is a freelance writer and editor who covers clean technology, sustainable design, and environmental issues for some of the most popular green sites on the web. She is a passionate believer in building a new economy based on sharing and community to help end our dangerous obsession with consumer culture.
