Let's get Herne Hill sharing !
Use Ecomodo.com to lend or borrow those everyday objects that so often gather dust in cellars, sheds and lofts with your neighbours. From lawnmowers to tents; golf clubs to awnings, Ecomodo lets you list your items to lend and see what others have on offer. Items can be lent for free or lenders are able to charge for an item, and choose if they want to keep the fee or make a donation to charity. Lend objects, spaces or even your skills; Ecomodo.com makes it easy to save money by borrowing the things you need nearby.
And if you're concerned about lending your stuff, Ecomodo has some clever features that will make you more comfortable to share. Individuals can set up lending circles around any type of community (a street, neighbourhood, school, workplace) and invite people to join and pool their assets. You can then use your circles to automatically control who can borrow your gear and choose to take a deposit or insurance for extra peace of mind. And just like Ebay, a feedback rating system checks that both parties are happy at the end of a lend.
Already in Herne Hill some neighbours have started a lending circle for Fawnbrake Avenue (and surrounding streets) and added items to lend including: a chocolate fountain, ladder, travel cot and bike.
If you're not sure what to lend or borrow - sign up - to keep an eye on new items or wanted ads added around Herne Hill. And for a bit of inspiration browse all the items to borrow to see what others are lending around the UK.
Ecomodo is a social enterprise and our aim is to bring neighbours together, to help each other by making visible the things that people are willing to share and prevent waste through borrowing instead of buying.
