The new sharing economy recognizes that we each have a pivotal role to play in creating a world that encourages creativity, innovation, and a more free, open, and participatory culture. By being shareable in your every day life, you can lead a life that is better for the environment, wallet friendly, and that allows you to contribute to the new sharing economy – the engine of the free culture movement.

If you’ve ever shared a car ride, lent someone a book, made a mix tape, or traded clothing, you’re part of the sharing economy.
