What is NBC's Share and Tell?
Glad you asked.
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!Some more information about Share and Tell:
What is yerdle?
I don't know about all of you, but to me, this is an awesome idea. We are really putting a serious hurting on our planet. Every one of us is doing something to the planet that we shouldn't be doing, no matter how careful you are not to leave your footprints on her.
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.
Yerdle sounds like a wonderful idea. Why not share things that you know longer need and is still useful, so it doesn't need to be taken to the dump. Maybe one of your friends could use it. Or, looking for something in particular but can't find one within your price range, but yet your friend has one that they are willing to give up because it is just taking up space. So, instead of loading it in the truck to go to the landfill, they load it up and bring it to your place, for you.
