Did you know that for every pound of new goods produced, 71 pounds
of waste are generated during manufacturing? This Earth Week,
NBCUniversal is partnering with the sharing site yerdle to
help you minimize your impact on the planet by sharing your stuff.
One person’s stuff is another person’s story!
What is yerdle?
Yerdle is the new mission-driven California Benefit corporation
that’s out to help people share with their friends rather than
buying things new. On yerdle, friends post items they’re willing
to give away or loan, search for items they’re looking to get, and
nab the things they want. Simple.
Here’s how it works.
1) Join or host a Share & Tell Party (click the “Join the
Party” button in the app below).
2) Post your stuff to share with friends. Discover other items
that are up for grabs.
3) Tell the story of your sharing experiences on your favorite
social media site. #ShareandTell.
