The Streetbank challenge: 7 things, 7 days
Global Sharing Week is the world's largest people-driven campaign to raise awareness of the rapidly growing Sharing Economy. It’s an opportunity for organisations like ours and lovely people like you, to shout about what we’re doing to be more resourceful - and all the weird and wonderful things that we’re sharing!
To celebrate and join in, Streetbank is inviting you to offer something to lend or give away to your neighbours each day during Global Sharing Week:
7th – 13th June 2015
In the run up to Christmas last year, our very own Marketing Director Kate gave something away to her neighbours every day for the 24 days of advent. That makes seven sound like a doddle!
All you have to do, is find seven things you don’t want or need knocking about the house, upload them each day and email us so we know you’re taking part. Or you could add something you’d be happy to lend or willing to help a neighbour with.
If every single Streetbank member were to join in, over £14m worth of stuff – or over 4,000 tonnes – could be diverted from landfill. But even if just ten of us take part, we can still make a massive impact. Our giving gets others going and neighbourhood sharing starts to snowball.
Up for it? Email us and we’ll keep you company along the way.
We might even send you a little something to say thank you.

Found this amazing app on the app store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/salt-bartering/id972418947?mt=8) where I traded many of my old stuff with my neighbors. The best part is the app will intelligently and automatically find the best matches for my items. You have to try it.

Just a quick one to say a big thank you to all of you who are getting involved! I think there are 30 of us around the world who are taking part! Little sparks of sharing that spread the fire of generosity in our neighbourhoods!

Have emailed but just to say it here and encourage others: I’m going to join in for part of it – can’t do all seven days due to prior arrangements. I put something on yesterday ahead of the game :D
