As Earth Week wraps up, I thought you might enjoy some fun activities, courtesy of NBC's Share and Tell, such as the "How Are You Green" Eco Quiz. I also thought you might like to learn about an awesome program that helps you unload your stuff or accumulate more. Yerdle is a mission-driven California Benefit corporation helping people share with their friends rather than buying things new.
You see, every pound of new goods produced generates 71 pounds of waste during the manufacturing process.Ouch. That's one of the reasons you hear me saying over and over again: buy used, reuse, re-create, etc. I recycle those terms on a regular basis. It's why one of my very favorite places to shop is Goodwill. And I simply love garage sale season.
Yerdle helps us minimize our impact on this beautiful planet of ours by helping us share our stuff. On yerdle, friends post items they're willing to give away or loan, search for items they're looking to get, and nab the things they want. It's simple. It's eco-friendly.
For more inspiration, just click the Real Life Share and Tell Stories link below and read the real life stories of how sharing on yerdle has helped people just like you and me get the stuff they need -- without buying a thing!
You can even host your own Share and Tell party with your friends and shed some excess house pounds by unloading the stuff you no longer need or want. Need some support? Email Rachel at yerdle and she'll be happy to help you out.
Why host a Share and Tell? Well, how about to protect the planet? Save money? Give gifts to your friends? Or simply find some things you need? And you don't even have to clean your house for a Share and Tell party, although you can if you want! These parties work just as well online or in person.
So check it out. Yerdle's the wave of the future... the eco-friendly wave, that is! And let me know how you do on the Eco Quiz!
