I discovered several wonderful sharing projects at the Green Festival in San Francisco this past weekend. First up: Rentalic helps individual people rent their stuff — lawnmowers, parking spaces, clothes, whatever you got –to other people. A social venture that combines for-profit and non-profit goals, their mission is "to help people save money, make money, and save the environment by encouraging reuse and sharing through person-to-person renting."

They charge a $.99 fee from those renting, and community members negotiate rental fees and terms between them. Rentalic launched a month ago, just like, and, like us, they're still beta. Sign up to become a charter member, and help improve and build the service!
