We have asked with our friends at the innovative sharing app Olio to share a little bit about themselves and why you need to start sharing more and wasting less. Over to Olio...
Raise your hand if you have a bag of miscellaneous items for the charity shop that have been sitting there for a little too long. Or if you bought enough food to feed a small army, and it’s about to go out of date. Or if you’ve had a change-of-season clear out and you don’t know what to do with all the things you’ve found (hello, six yoga mats and second kettle!).
We all have moments like this – where we find ourselves with things we don’t need and don’t know what to do with. Instead of waiting for that bag of bits to take itself somewhere or watching food go off, why not try OLIO?
OLIO is an app that connects neighbours with each other so food and household items can be shared, not thrown away. Simply list an item on the app, choose it's new owner, and they’ll come and collect it.
Not only is OLIO free and easy to use, it makes a positive impact on your neighbourhood. So far, 6 million users have shared 55 million portions of food. If you want to reduce your waste, declutter your home, and help your community in the process – OLIO is for you!
