Cincinnati-based start-up Share Some Sugar created a Web platform to link up neighbors who need to borrow things, and the people who don't mind loaning them. I haven't tried it, but I very much like the idea of communities sharing tools and other things that are just impractical or too expensive for most people to purchase, but when you need one, you really
need one. Here's the company story:
3 years ago I moved out of an apartment into my first home. Moving into
your first home is not only a big, scary deal, but once you move in, you realize that
you don't have 'house things' like a set of tools, a lawnmower, a ladder.
Share Some Sugar (Thanks, Elizabeth Edwards!)
I thought it would be silly to go out and buy things like a seeder or rake when I knew
that one of my neighbors had one. The problem was, I didn't know who had what.
I thought to myself, "what if there was a way to know who had what in your neighborhood?".
A way for you to see your neighbor's inventory, and share and borrow things rather than
buy them. In the meantime you would get to know and trust more of your neighbors.
You'd feel like you actually live in a community. Like the good old days when you would knock on
a neighbors door to see if they would Share Some Sugar with you.
