Sharing

Following are links that can help you share, barter, trade or find other ways to partake in “collaborative consumption.”

Co-Housing

Learn about co-housing opportunities in PA and NJ (or elsewhere). Sometimes called “eco-villages,” these sustainably minded communities typically combine private ownership of eco-friendly homes with collective involvement in activities such as organic farming or gardening. www.cohousing.org

Time Banks

Tim banks offer a systematic way to barter skllls, as in one hour of tutoring for an hour of plumbing. Learn more about them at the following links:

The following is a link to a PBS show that aired several years ago. The show featured a time bank as well as a wide range of other sustainable business enterprises. Very inspiring!
