Sharing is caring: new online network helping to save planet

Want to de-clutter your life – and help make a difference?
 
It’s that time of year when many get the itch to spring clean and make light of their homes.
 
But unfortunately it can have a nasty side effect – over four trillion kilograms of waste is sent to landfill each year. Sadly, this waste is made up of a lot of really useful items like clothes, toys and books.
 
Imagine if you could do something useful with it? Well now you can.
 
Sustainability leader and ABC TV personality James Bradfield Moody has launched TuShare, an app and website to make sharing things we no longer need easier – saving money and the planet.
 
TuShare aims to build the world’s largest community of sharers, by making sharing easy.
 
Moody, a judge on former top-rating ABC show New Inventors, has partnered with “serial” innovator Kohei Nishiyama to create this environmentally friendly concept.
 
TuShare makes it easy to give things you no longer need to friends and community members.
 
Or you can use the app to find useful items for free – or just the cost of postage.
 
"Sharing the stuff we no longer need with others is great, says Moody. “It saves money, reduces clutter and is good for the planet.
 
“We believe that the easier it is to share, the more people will do it. That's why we created a solution that makes giving items away and finding those you need as safe and easy as possible."
 
And giving things to others has been scientifically proven to make people happier.
 
“TuShare was built on the belief that people are naturally generous and love to help each other, says Moody. “Even small acts of generosity and the gratitude that follows can significantly brighten up your day.”
 
Why share on TuShare? 
TuShare is a network of people giving household items to one another for free.
 
You can list items you no longer need or browse for things that someone else has to give away.
 
How is it different from other sharing avenues?
 
“We simplify the process of getting an unwanted item in someone’s home into the hands of someone who needs it through clever matching and a door-to-door courier service,” says Moody.
 
“TuShare will connect you with the people in your network who want to share.”
 
With TuShare’s specialized courier system you can send goods safely, securely and easily.
 
There is no need to meet strangers, no sharing your personal address, no visiting the post office, no fuss. The more items you send the more rewards you get.
