It's one of the first things we learn as kids: How to share.

But this practice usually fades as we become adults.

Our houses become filled with our own "stuff." Garages, attics, basements,
and closets transform into cluttered warehouses. When we need something,
whether it's a chainsaw or a roasting rack, our first thought is to go out
and buy it. But why get it new when our neighbor down the street has one we
can borrow?

Guide to Sharing


New Dream presents a community guide all about sharing: everything from
starting a tool library to organizing a solar cooperative, from holding a
clothing swap to launching a time bank.

With how-to tips, fun videos, and useful resources, the Guide to Sharing
provides the inspiration and practical tools you need to get started on
these projects in your community - right away!

The guide is produced in collaboration with Shareable.net
and explores four Action Ideas:

- Organize a Community Swap
- Lend Locally
- Share Time, Labor, and Skills
- Set up a Co-op


Spread the Word!
