Did you know that for every pound of new goods produced, 71 pounds of waste are generated during manufacturing? Yikes! Earth Week is in just a few weeks, and NBCUniversal is partnering with the yerdle, anew mission-driven California Benefit corporation that’s out to help people share with their friends rather than buying things brand 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. After all, one person’s junk is another person’s treasure!
Here’s how the Share & Tell App Works:
- Join or host a Share & Tell Party (click the “Join the Party” button in the app below).
- Post your stuff to share with friends. Discover other items that are up for grabs.
- Tell the story of your sharing experiences on your favorite social media site. #ShareandTell.
Here are some fun features of the NBC Share and Tell App:
